Query Info Flags

These attributes and modifiers are used by WinHttpQueryHeaders.

The attribute flags are used by WinHttpQueryHeaders to indicate what information to retrieve. Most of the attribute flags map directly to a specific HTTP header. There are also some special flags, such as WINHTTP_QUERY_RAW_HEADERS, that are not related to a specific header.

Retrieves the acceptable natural languages for the response.

WINHTTP_QUERY_ACCEPT_RANGES

Retrieves the types of range requests that are accepted for a resource.

Retrieves additional information about the status of a response that might not be reflected by the response status code.

WINHTTP_QUERY_WWW_AUTHENTICATE

Retrieves the authentication scheme and realm returned by the server.

The modifier flags are used in conjunction with an attribute flag to modify the request. Modifier flags either modify the format of the data returned or indicate where the WinHttpQueryHeaders function should search for the information.

WINHTTP_QUERY_FLAG_NUMBER

Returns the data as a 32-bit number for headers whose value is a number, such as the status code.

WINHTTP_QUERY_FLAG_REQUEST_HEADERS

Queries request headers only.
