HttpWebRequest.Accept Property

Gets or sets the value of the Accept HTTP header.

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

public string Accept { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Accept ()

/** @property */
public void set_Accept (String value)

public function get Accept () : String

public function set Accept (value : String)

Property Value

The value of the Accept HTTP header. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

To clear the Accept HTTP header, set the Accept property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

NoteNote

The value for this property is stored in WebHeaderCollection. If WebHeaderCollection is set, the property value is lost.

The following code example sets the Accept property.

// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest=(HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(myUri);
// Set the 'Accept' property to accept an image of any type.
myHttpWebRequest.Accept="image/*";
// The response object of 'HttpWebRequest' is assigned to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse=(HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();

// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)
    (WebRequest.Create(myUri));
// Set the 'Accept' property to accept an image of any type.
myHttpWebRequest.set_Accept("image/*");
// The response object of 'HttpWebRequest' is assigned to a
//'HttpWebResponse' variable.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)
    (myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse());
