Property Value

The name of the domain associated with the credentials.

The Domain property specifies the domain or realm to which the user name belongs. Typically, this is the host computer name where the application runs or the user domain for the currently logged in user.

The following code example uses the Domain property to set the domain associated with the credentials.

// Create an empty instance of the NetworkCredential class.
NetworkCredential myCredentials = new NetworkCredential("","","");
myCredentials.Domain = domain;
myCredentials.UserName = username;
myCredentials.Password = passwd;

// Create a WebRequest with the specified URL. 
WebRequest myWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url); 
myWebRequest.Credentials = myCredentials;
Console.WriteLine("\n\nUser Credentials:- Domain : {0} , UserName : {1} , Password : {2}",myCredentials.Domain,myCredentials.UserName,myCredentials.Password);

// Send the request and wait for a response.
Console.WriteLine("\n\nRequest to Url is sent.Waiting for response...Please wait ...");
WebResponse myWebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse();

// Process the response.
Console.WriteLine("\nResponse received sucessfully");

// Release the resources of the response object.
myWebResponse.Close();


// Create an empty instance of the NetworkCredential class.
NetworkCredential myCredentials = new NetworkCredential("", "", "");
myCredentials.set_Domain(domain);
myCredentials.set_UserName(userName);
myCredentials.set_Password(passwd);
// Create a WebRequest with the specified URL. 
WebRequest myWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url);
myWebRequest.set_Credentials(myCredentials);
Console.WriteLine("\n\nUser Credentials:- Domain : {0} , "
    + "UserName : {1} , Password : {2}",
    myCredentials.get_Domain(), myCredentials.get_UserName(), 
    myCredentials.get_Password());
// Send the request and wait for a response.
Console.WriteLine("\n\nRequest to Url is sent.Waiting for "
    + "response...Please wait...");
WebResponse myWebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse();
// Process the response.
Console.WriteLine("\nResponse received sucessfully");
// Release the resources of the response object.
myWebResponse.Close();
