Property Value

A string array of client-supported MIME accept types.

The following code example captures the multiple values returned by the AcceptTypes property into an object variable and writes the number and name of each valueto a separate line of HTTP output.

Dim MyType() As String
 Dim Indx As Integer
 MyType = Request.AcceptTypes
 For Indx = 0 To MyType.GetUpperBound(0)
    Response.Write("Accept Type " & Cstr(Indx) & ": " & Cstr(MyType(Indx)) & "<br>")
 Next Indx

int indx;
String arr[] = get_Request().get_AcceptTypes();

for (indx = 0; indx < arr.length; indx++) {
    get_Response().Write(("Accept Type " + indx + ": "
        + arr.get_Item(indx) + "<br>"));

var arr : String[] = Request.AcceptTypes
for(var i=0; i < arr.Length; i++){
  Response.Write("Accept Type " + i + ": " + arr[i] + "<br>")
