GetResponse Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

When overridden in a descendant class, returns a response to an Internet request.

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

'Declaration
Public Overridable Function GetResponse As WebResponse

Return Value

Type: System.Net..::..WebResponse
A WebResponse containing the response to the Internet request.

The GetResponse method sends a request to an Internet resource and returns a WebResponse instance. If the request has already been initiated by a call to GetRequestStream, the GetResponse method completes the request and returns any response.

The GetResponse method provides synchronous access to the WebResponse. For asynchronous access, use the BeginGetResponse and EndGetResponse methods.

NoteNote

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.
