MaxResponseHeadersLength Property

WebRequestHandler.MaxResponseHeadersLength Property

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Gets or sets the maximum allowed length of the response headers.

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

public int MaxResponseHeadersLength { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
Returns Int32.
The length, in kilobytes (1024 bytes), of the response headers.

The length of the response header includes the response status line and any extra control characters that are received as part of HTTP protocol. A value of -1 means no limit is imposed on the response headers; a value of 0 means that all requests fail.

If the MaxResponseHeadersLength property is not explicitly set, it defaults to the value of the DefaultMaximumResponseHeadersLength property.

If the length of the response header received exceeds the value of the MaxResponseHeadersLength property, an exception is thrown when the response is accessed.
