public class HttpBrowserCapabilitiesWrapper : HttpBrowserCapabilitiesBase

The HttpBrowserCapabilitiesWrapper class derives from the HttpBrowserCapabilitiesBase class and serves as a wrapper for the HttpBrowserCapabilities class. This class exposes the functionality of the HttpBrowserCapabilities class and exposes the HttpBrowserCapabilitiesBase type. The HttpBrowserCapabilitiesBase class enables you to replace the original implementation of the HttpBrowserCapabilities class in your application with a custom implementation, such as when you perform unit testing outside the ASP.NET pipeline.


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