Returns the data stream from the file system resource.

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

public:
virtual Stream^ GetResponseStream() override

Return Value

Type: System.IO::Stream^

A Stream for reading data from the file system resource.

The GetResponseStream method returns the data stream from the file system resource.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The response stream must be closed to avoid running out of system resources. The response stream can be closed by calling Stream::Close or Close

The following example uses the GetResponseStream method to return the data stream from the file system resource.

Uri^ fileUrl = gcnew Uri( String::Concat( "file://", url ) );
// Create a 'FileWebrequest' Object* with the specified Uri.
FileWebRequest^ myFileWebRequest = (FileWebRequest^)( WebRequest::Create( fileUrl ) );
// Send the 'FileWebRequest' Object* and wait for response.
FileWebResponse^ myFileWebResponse = (FileWebResponse^)( myFileWebRequest->GetResponse() );

// Get the stream Object* associated with the response Object*.
Stream^ receiveStream = myFileWebResponse->GetResponseStream();

Encoding^ encode = System::Text::Encoding::GetEncoding( "utf-8" );
// Pipe the stream to a higher level stream reader with the required encoding format.
StreamReader^ readStream = gcnew StreamReader( receiveStream,encode );
Console::WriteLine( "\r\nResponse stream received" );

array<Char>^ read = gcnew array<Char>(256);
// Read 256 characters at a time.
int count = readStream->Read( read, 0, 256 );
Console::WriteLine( "File Data...\r\n" );
while ( count > 0 )
{
   // Dump the 256 characters on a String* and display the String* onto the console.
   String^ str = gcnew String( read,0,count );
   Console::Write( str );
   count = readStream->Read( read, 0, 256 );
}
Console::WriteLine( "" );
// Release resources of stream Object*.
readStream->Close();
// Release resources of response Object*.
myFileWebResponse->Close();
