The HttpVersion class defines the HTTP versions that are supported by the HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse classes. The HTTP version number is used to control version-specific features of HTTP, such as pipelining and chunking.

The following example demonstrates the use of HttpVersion.

// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest=(HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.microsoft.com");
Console.WriteLine("\nThe 'ProtocolVersion' of the protocol before assignment is :{0}",myHttpWebRequest.ProtocolVersion);
// Assign Version10 to ProtocolVersion.
myHttpWebRequest.ProtocolVersion=HttpVersion.Version10;
// Assign the response object of 'HttpWebRequest' to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse=(HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();
Console.WriteLine("\nThe 'ProtocolVersion' of the protocol after  assignment is :{0}",myHttpWebRequest.ProtocolVersion);
Console.WriteLine("\nThe 'ProtocolVersion' of the response object is :{0}",myHttpWebResponse.ProtocolVersion);
