WebRequest.BeginGetRequestStream Method

When overridden in a descendant class, provides an asynchronous version of the GetRequestStream method.

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

[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)>]
abstract BeginGetRequestStream : 
        callback:AsyncCallback * 
        state:Object -> IAsyncResult 
[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)>]
override BeginGetRequestStream : 
        callback:AsyncCallback * 
        state:Object -> IAsyncResult 

Parameters

callback
Type: System.AsyncCallback
The AsyncCallback delegate.
state
Type: System.Object
An object containing state information for this asynchronous request.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult that references the asynchronous request.

ExceptionCondition
NotImplementedException

Any attempt is made to access the method, when the method is not overridden in a descendant class.

The BeginGetRequestStream method starts an asynchronous request for a stream used to send data to an Internet resource. The callback method that implements the AsyncCallback delegate uses the EndGetRequestStream method to return the request stream.

NoteNote

The WebRequest class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebRequest instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by the WebRequest.Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and FileWebRequest.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following example uses the BeginGetRequestStream to asynchronously obtain the request stream.
