Property Value

' specified WebProxy instance.

Public Shared Sub DisplayProxyProperties(ByVal proxy As WebProxy)
    Console.WriteLine("Address: {0}", proxy.Address)
    Console.WriteLine("Bypass on local: {0}", proxy.BypassProxyOnLocal)

    Dim count As Integer = proxy.BypassList.Length
    If count = 0 Then
        Console.WriteLine("The bypass list is empty.")
    End If
    Dim bypass() As String = proxy.BypassList
    Console.WriteLine("The bypass list contents:")

    For i = 0 To count - 1
    Next i
End Sub
