ServicePointManagerElement.Expect100Continue Property

Gets or sets a Boolean value that determines whether 100-Continue behavior is used.

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

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("expect100Continue", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool Expect100Continue { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to expect 100-Continue responses for POST requests; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

When this property is set to true, client requests that use the POST method expect to receive a 100-Continue response from the server to indicate that the client should send the data to be posted. This mechanism allows clients to avoid sending large amounts of data over the network when the server, based on the request headers, intends to reject the request.

For additional information, see ServicePointManager.Expect100Continue.
