HttpResponse.Filter Property


Gets or sets a wrapping filter object that is used to modify the HTTP entity body before transmission.

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

member Filter : Stream with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.IO.Stream

The Stream object that acts as the output filter.

Exception Condition

Filtering is not allowed with the entity.

When you create a Stream object and set the Filter property to the Stream object, all HTTP output sent by Write passes through the filter.

The following example is an ASP.NET page that sets the Filter property to a new instance of the UpperCaseFilter class, a custom Stream class that converts all text that passes through it to uppercase. The information about the request is saved to a text file, and then the Filter property is set. After the response filter is in place, the code calls the MapPath method to get the absolute path to a text file named TestFile.txt that serves as the source for the content of the response. The code then creates a new StreamReader object to read the text file from beginning to end, and then calls the Write method to display the content of the file on the page.
