Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
A DateTime that contains the date and time that the contents of the response were modified.

The LastModified property contains the value of the Last-Modified header received with the response. The date and time are assumed to be local time.

This example creates an HttpWebRequest and queries for a response. This example then checks whether the entity requested had been modified any time today.

Dim myUri As New Uri(url)
' Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. 
Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(myUri), HttpWebRequest)
Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
If myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + ControlChars.Cr + "Request succeeded and the requested information is in the response , Description : {0}", myHttpWebResponse.StatusDescription)
End If 
Dim today As DateTime = DateTime.Now
' Uses the LastModified property to compare with today's date. 
If DateTime.Compare(today, myHttpWebResponse.LastModified) = 0 Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The requested URI entity was modified today")
Else 
    If DateTime.Compare(today, myHttpWebResponse.LastModified) =  1 Then
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The requested Uri was last modified on:{0}", myHttpWebResponse.LastModified)
    End If 
End If 
' Releases the resources of the response.
myHttpWebResponse.Close()
Uri* myUri = new Uri(url);
// Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL.
HttpWebRequest* myHttpWebRequest =
   dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest*>(WebRequest::Create(myUri));
HttpWebResponse* myHttpWebResponse =
   dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse*>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());
if (myHttpWebResponse->StatusCode == HttpStatusCode::OK)
   Console::WriteLine(S"\r\nRequest succeeded and the requested information is in the response , Description : {0}",
   myHttpWebResponse->StatusDescription);
DateTime today = DateTime::Now;
// Uses the LastModified property to compare with today's date.
if (DateTime::Compare(today, myHttpWebResponse->LastModified) == 0)
   Console::WriteLine(S"\nThe requested URI entity was modified today");
else
   if (DateTime::Compare(today, myHttpWebResponse->LastModified) == 1)
      Console::WriteLine(S"\nThe requested URI was last modified on: {0}",
      __box(myHttpWebResponse->LastModified));
// Releases the resources of the response.
myHttpWebResponse->Close();
