Stop Method

HttpListener.Stop Method

Causes this instance to stop receiving incoming requests.

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

public void Stop()

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

This object has been closed.

If this instance is already stopped, calling this method has no effect.

After you have stopped an HttpListener object, you can use the Start method to restart it.

Notes to Callers

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 code example demonstrates using the Stop method to stop processing incoming requests.


public static void NonblockingListener(string [] prefixes)
{
    HttpListener listener = new HttpListener();
    foreach (string s in prefixes)
    {
        listener.Prefixes.Add(s);
    }
    listener.Start();
    IAsyncResult result = listener.BeginGetContext(new AsyncCallback(ListenerCallback),listener);
    // Applications can do some work here while waiting for the  
    // request. If no work can be done until you have processed a request, 
    // use a wait handle to prevent this thread from terminating 
    // while the asynchronous operation completes.
    Console.WriteLine("Waiting for request to be processed asyncronously.");
    result.AsyncWaitHandle.WaitOne();
    Console.WriteLine("Request processed asyncronously.");
    listener.Close();
}
