The value for this property is stored in WebHeaderCollection. If WebHeaderCollection is set, the property value is lost.

The following code example sets the Accept property.

' Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(myUri)
' Set the 'Accept' property to accept an image of any type.
myHttpWebRequest.Accept = "image/*"
' The response object of 'HttpWebRequest' is assigned to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable.
Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)
    (WebRequest.Create(myUri));
// Set the 'Accept' property to accept an image of any type.
myHttpWebRequest.set_Accept("image/*");
// The response object of 'HttpWebRequest' is assigned to a
//'HttpWebResponse' variable.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)
    (myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse());
