The following code example uses the Get method to retrieve a header value in a WebHeaderCollection.

If args.Length = 0 Then
    Console.WriteLine("must specify a URL!")
End If
Dim server As String = args(0)

' Create the web request 
Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(server), HttpWebRequest)
myHttpWebRequest.Timeout = 1000
' Get the associated response for the above request.
Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

' Get the headers associated with the response.
Dim myWebHeaderCollection As WebHeaderCollection = myHttpWebResponse.Headers

For i = 0 To myWebHeaderCollection.Count - 1
    Dim header As String = myWebHeaderCollection.GetKey(i)
    Dim values() As String = myWebHeaderCollection.GetValues(header)
    If values.Length > 0 Then
        Console.WriteLine("The values of {0} header are : ", header)
        For j = 0 To values.Length - 1
            Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "{0}", values(j))
        Next j
        Console.WriteLine("There is no value associated" & "with the header")
    End If
Next i

' Get the headers again, using new properties (Keys, 
' AllKeys, Clear) and methods (Get and GetKey)

Dim headers() As String = myWebHeaderCollection.AllKeys

' enumerate through the header collection.
For Each s In headers
    Console.WriteLine("Header {0}, value {1}", s, myWebHeaderCollection.Get(s))
Next s


' show the use of Get(Int32) and GetValue(Int32)
If myWebHeaderCollection.Count > 0 Then
    ' get the name and value of the first header
    Dim index As Integer = 0
    Console.WriteLine("Header {0}: name {1}, value {2}", index, myWebHeaderCollection.GetKey(index), myWebHeaderCollection.Get(index))
End If
