Makes a request to a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). This is an abstract class.
Assembly: System.Http (in System.Http.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ConnectionGroupName||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the name of the connection group for the request.|
|ContentLength||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the content length of the request data being sent.|
|ContentType||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the content type of the request data being sent.|
|DefaultWebProxy||Gets or sets the global HTTP proxy.|
|Headers||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the collection of header name/value pairs associated with the request.|
|Method||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the protocol method to use in this request.|
|Proxy||When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the network proxy to use to access this Internet resource.|
|RequestUri||When overridden in a descendant class, gets the URI of the Internet resource associated with the request.|
|Timeout||Gets or sets the length of time, in milliseconds, before the request times out.|
|Create(String)||Initializes a new instance for the specified URI scheme.|
|Create(Uri)||Initializes a new instance for the specified URI scheme.|
|Dispose()()()()||Releases the resources used by the HttpWebRequest.|
|Dispose(Boolean)||Releases the unmanaged resources used by the HttpWebRequest and optionally releases the managed resources.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Performs clean up operations. (Overrides Object..::..Finalize()()()().)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetRequestStream||When overridden in a descendant class, returns a Stream for writing data to the Internet resource.|
|GetResponse||When overridden in a descendant class, returns a response to an Internet request.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|RegisterPrefix||Registers a descendant for the specified URI.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
is the abstract base class for the .NET Micro Framework's request/response model for accessing data from the Internet. An application that uses the request/response model can request data from the Internet in a protocol-agnostic manner, in which the application works with instances of the class while protocol-specific descendant classes carry out the details of the request.
Requests are sent from an application to a particular URI, such as a Web page on a server. The URI determines the proper descendant class to create from a list of descendants registered for the application. descendants are typically registered to handle a specific protocol, such as HTTP or FTP, but can be registered to handle a request to a specific server or path on a server.
The class throws a WebException when errors occur while accessing an Internet resource. The Status property is one of the WebExceptionStatus values that indicates the source of the error. When Status is WebExceptionStatus..::..ProtocolError, the Response property contains the WebResponse received from the Internet resource.
Because the class is an abstract class, the actual behavior of instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and .
Use the Create method to initialize new instances. Do not use the constructor.
