strValue = oXMLHttpRequest.responseStream

HRESULT get_responseStream(VARIANT* pvarBody);

 pvarBody [out, retval]

The response entity body as an IStream.

S_OK

The value returned if successful.

E_PENDING

The value returned if the data is unavailable.

HRESULT hr;
IXMLHttpRequest *pIXMLHttpRequest = NULL;
IStream *pIStream = NULL;
VARIANT varValue;

try
{
   // Create XMLHttpRequest object and initialize pIXMLHttpRequest.
   hr = pIXMLHttpRequest->get_responseStream(&varValue);
   if(SUCCEEDED(hr))
   {
      pIStream = (IStream*)varValue.punkVal;
      if(pIStream)
      {
         pIStream->Release();
         pIStream = NULL;
      }
   }
}
catch(...)
{
   if(pIStream)
      pIStream->Release();
   DisplayErrorToUser();
}
// Release pIXMLHttpRequest when finished with it.

Variant. The property is read-only. Represents the response entity body as an IStream. This stream returns the raw undecoded bytes as received directly from the server. Therefore, depending on what the server sent, this may appear as binary-encoded data (UTF-8, UCS-2, UCS-4, Shift_JIS, and so on).

Implemented in:
