' ResponseHeaders is a WebHeaderCollection instance that contains the headers sent back 
 ' in response to the WebClient request. 
Dim myWebHeaderCollection As WebHeaderCollection = myWebClient.ResponseHeaders
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Displaying the response headers" + ControlChars.Cr)
' Loop through the ResponseHeaders.
Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To myWebHeaderCollection.Count - 1
    ' Display the headers as name/value pairs.
    Console.WriteLine((ControlChars.Tab + myWebHeaderCollection.GetKey(i) + " " + ChrW(61) + " " + myWebHeaderCollection.Get(i)))
Next i 

// Obtain the WebHeaderCollection instance containing the 
// header name/value pair from the response.
WebHeaderCollection myWebHeaderCollection = 
Console.WriteLine("\nDisplaying the response headers\n");
// Loop through the ResponseHeaders and display the header
// name/value pairs.
for (int i = 0; i < myWebHeaderCollection.get_Count(); i++) {
    Console.WriteLine("\t" + myWebHeaderCollection.GetKey(i) 
        + " = " + myWebHeaderCollection.Get(i));
