FileWebRequest.EndGetResponse Method

Ends an asynchronous request for a file system resource.

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

public:
virtual WebResponse^ EndGetResponse (
	IAsyncResult^ asyncResult
) override
public WebResponse EndGetResponse (
	IAsyncResult asyncResult
)
public override function EndGetResponse (
	asyncResult : IAsyncResult
) : WebResponse

Parameters

asyncResult

An IAsyncResult that references the pending request for a response.

Return Value

A WebResponse that contains the response from the file system resource.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

asyncResult is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The EndGetResponse method completes an asynchronous request for a file system resource that was started with the BeginGetResponse method.

The following code example uses the EndGetResponse method to end an asynchronous request for a file system resource.

public ref class RequestDeclare
{
public:
   FileWebRequest^ myFileWebRequest;
   RequestDeclare()
   {
      myFileWebRequest = nullptr;
   }

};

ref class FileWebRequest_resbeginend
{
public:
   static ManualResetEvent^ allDone = gcnew ManualResetEvent( false );
   static void RespCallback( IAsyncResult^ ar )
   {
      
      // State of request is asynchronous.
      RequestDeclare^ requestDeclare = dynamic_cast<RequestDeclare^>(ar->AsyncState);
      FileWebRequest^ myFileWebRequest = requestDeclare->myFileWebRequest;
      
      // End the Asynchronus request by calling the 'EndGetResponse()' method.
      FileWebResponse^ myFileWebResponse = dynamic_cast<FileWebResponse^>(myFileWebRequest->EndGetResponse( ar ));
      
      // Reade the response into Stream.
      StreamReader^ streamReader = gcnew StreamReader( myFileWebResponse->GetResponseStream() );
      array<Char>^readBuffer = gcnew array<Char>(256);
      int count = streamReader->Read( readBuffer, 0, 256 );
      Console::WriteLine( "The contents of the file are :\n" );
      while ( count > 0 )
      {
         String^ str = gcnew String( readBuffer,0,count );
         Console::WriteLine( str );
         count = streamReader->Read( readBuffer, 0, 256 );
      }

      streamReader->Close();
      
      // Release the response Object* resources.
      myFileWebResponse->Close();
      allDone->Set();
      Console::WriteLine( "File reading is over." );
   }

};
