HttpWebRequest::TransferEncoding Property

Gets or sets the value of the Transfer-encoding HTTP header.

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

public:
property String^ TransferEncoding {
	String^ get ();
	void set (String^ value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::String
The value of the Transfer-encoding HTTP header. The default value is nullptr.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

TransferEncoding is set when SendChunked is false.

ArgumentException

TransferEncoding is set to the value "Chunked".

Before you can set the TransferEncoding property, you must first set the SendChunked property to true. Clearing TransferEncoding by setting it to nullptr has no effect on the value of SendChunked.

Values assigned to the TransferEncoding property replace any existing contents.

NoteNote:

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