HttpWebRequest.ConnectionGroupName Property

Gets or sets the name of the connection group for the request.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

abstract ConnectionGroupName : string with get, set 
override ConnectionGroupName : string with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the connection group for this request. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The ConnectionGroupName property enables you to associate a request with a connection group. This is useful when your application makes requests to one server for different users, such as a Web site that retrieves customer information from a database server.

Notes to Implementers

Each connection group creates additional connections for a server. This may result in exceeding the number of connections set by the ServicePoint.ConnectionLimit property for that server.

The following code example show how to use user information to form a connection group, assuming that the variables username, password, and domain are set by the application before this code is called.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
