ContentType Constructor

Initializes a new default instance of the ContentType class.

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

public ContentType()

This constructor initializes the MediaType property to "application/octet-stream".

The following code example demonstrates how to call this constructor.

		// The following example sends a summary of a log file as the message 
		// and the log as an e-mail attachment. 
		public static void SendNamedErrorLog(string server, string recipientList)
			// Create a message from logMailer@contoso.com to recipientList.
			MailMessage message = new MailMessage(
			   "logMailer@contoso.com", recipientList);

			message.Subject = "Error Log report";
			string fileName = "log.txt";
			// Get the file stream for the error log. 
			// Requires the System.IO namespace.
			FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
			StreamReader s = new StreamReader(fs);
			int errors = 0;
			while (s.ReadLine() != null)
				// Process each line from the log file here.
			// The e-mail message summarizes the data found in the log.
			message.Body = String.Format("{0} errors in log as of {1}",
				errors, DateTime.Now);
			// Close the stream reader. This also closes the file.
			// Re-open the file at the beginning to make the attachment.
			fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
			// Make a ContentType indicating that the log data 
			// that is attached is plain text and is named.
			ContentType ct = new ContentType();
			ct.MediaType = MediaTypeNames.Text.Plain;
			ct.Name = "log" + DateTime.Now.ToString() + ".txt";
			// Create the attachment.
			Attachment data = new Attachment(fs, ct);
			// Add the attachment to the message.
			// Send the message. 
			// Include credentials if the server requires them.
			SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server);
			client.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;

	    try {
      catch (Exception ex) {
        Console.WriteLine("Exception caught in SendNamedErrorLog: {0}", 
                    ex.ToString() );
			// Close the log file.
