WebRequest.EndGetResponse Method (IAsyncResult)


When overridden in a descendant class, returns a WebResponse.

Namespace:   System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

abstract EndGetResponse : 
        asyncResult:IAsyncResult -> WebResponse
override EndGetResponse : 
        asyncResult:IAsyncResult -> WebResponse


Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult that references a pending request for a response.

Return Value

Type: System.Net.WebResponse

A WebResponse that contains a response to the Internet request.

Exception Condition

Any attempt is made to access the method, when the method is not overridden in a descendant class.

The EndGetResponse method completes an asynchronous request for an Internet resource that was started with the BeginGetResponse method.


The WebRequest class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebRequest instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by the WebRequest.Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and FileWebRequest.

The following example calls the EndGetResponse to retrieve the target resource.
