member OutputStream : Stream with get

Property Value

Type: System.IO.Stream

An IO Stream representing the raw contents of the outgoing HTTP content body.

Exception Condition

OutputStream is not available.

Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, when you use the Stream.Write(Byte[], Int32, Int32) method of the IO stream returned by the OutputStream property, the following exceptions might be thrown:

The following example calls the Save method to save a Bitmap object to the OutputStream property, and converts the image to the JPEG format. The code then calls the Dispose method on the Bitmap object and a Graphics object, releasing the resources that they were using. Finally, the code calls the Flush method to send the content of the response to the requesting client.

For a complete example, see the HttpResponse class.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
