.GetWebRequest Method (Uri)
.NET Framework (current version)
WebRequest object for the specified resource. Namespace:
System (in System.dll)
protected virtual WebRequest GetWebRequest(
Uri that identifies the resource to request.
This method copies the existing
, Headers , and method to the newly created Credentials WebRequest object.
This method can be called only by classes that inherit from
WebClient. It is provided to give inheritors access to the underlying WebRequest object. Derived classes should call the base class implementation of GetWebRequest to ensure the method works as expected.
The following code example shows an implementation of this method that can be customized by a class derived from
protected override WebRequest GetWebRequest (Uri address)
WebRequest request = (WebRequest) base.GetWebRequest (address);
// Perform any customizations on the request.
// This version of WebClient always preauthenticates.
request.PreAuthenticate = true;
