When a client makes a request to a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) handled by an HttpListener object, the HttpListener provides a HttpListenerContext object that contains information about the sender, the request, and the response that is sent to the client. The HttpListenerContext..::..Request property returns the HttpListenerRequest object that describes the request.

The HttpListenerRequest object contains information about the request, such as the request HttpMethod string, UserAgent string, and request body data (see the InputStream property).

To reply to the request, you must get the associated response using the Response property.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
