FileWebRequest.EndGetRequestStream Method

Ends an asynchronous request for a Stream instance that the application uses to write data.

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

public override function EndGetRequestStream(
	asyncResult : IAsyncResult
) : Stream


Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult that references the pending request for a stream.

Return Value

Type: System.IO.Stream
A Stream object that the application uses to write data.


asyncResult is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The EndGetRequestStream method completes an asynchronous stream request that was started by the BeginGetRequestStream method.


To avoid timing issues with garbage collection, be sure to close the response stream by calling the Close method on the stream returned by the GetResponseStream method after calling the EndGetResponse method.

The following example uses the EndGetRequestStream method to end the asynchronous request for a Stream object.
