HttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream Method

Gets the stream that is used to read the body of the response from the server.

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

abstract GetResponseStream : unit -> Stream  
override GetResponseStream : unit -> Stream

Return Value

Type: System.IO.Stream
A Stream containing the body of the response.

ExceptionCondition
ProtocolViolationException

There is no response stream.

ObjectDisposedException

The current instance has been disposed.

The GetResponseStream method returns the data stream from the requested Internet resource.

NoteNote

You must call either the Stream.Close or the HttpWebResponse.Close method to close the stream and release the connection for reuse. It is not necessary to call both Stream.Close and HttpWebResponse.Close, but doing so does not cause an error. Failure to close the stream will cause your application to run out of connections.

NoteNote

This member outputs trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing in the .NET Framework.

The following example demonstrates how to use GetResponseStream to return the Stream instance used to read the response from the server.
