The following example demonstrates how to close a HttpWebResponse.
// Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url); // Sends the HttpWebRequest and waits for a response. HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(); Console.WriteLine("\nResponse Received.Trying to Close the response stream.."); // Releases the resources of the response. myHttpWebResponse.Close(); Console.WriteLine("\nResponse Stream successfully closed");
