The following example uses the StreamWriter class to write the values of several HttpRequest class properties values to a file. For properties that are of type string, the values are HTML encoded as they are written to the file. Properties that represent a collection are looped through, and each key/value pair that they contain is written to the file.

Security noteSecurity Note:

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview (Visual Studio).

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
