        ' Sends the request and waits for a response.
        Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
        If myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
            Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + ControlChars.NewLine + "Response Status Code is OK and StatusDescription is: {0}", myHttpWebResponse.StatusDescription)
        End If
        ' Release the resources of the response.
        myHttpWebResponse.Close()
    
    Catch e As WebException
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + ControlChars.NewLine + "Exception Raised. The following error occured : {0}", e.Status)
    Catch e As Exception
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "The following exception was raised : {0}", e.Message)
