The FileWebResponse class implements the WebResponseabstract base class to return file system resources for the FileWebRequest class.

Client applications do not create FileWebResponse instances directly; instead, they are created by calling the GetResponse method on a FileWebRequest instance.

The GetResponseStream method returns a Stream instance that provides read-only access to a file system resource.

The FileWebResponse class relies on the File class for error handling and code access security.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
