WebException Constructor

WebException Constructor

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Initializes a new instance of the WebException class.

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

public WebException()

The default constructor initializes a new instance of the WebException class. The Message property is initialized to a system-supplied message that describes the error. This message takes into account the current system culture. The InnerException and Response properties are initialized to null. The Status property is initialized to RequestCanceled.

The following example throws a default WebException.


  public class Example
  {
    static ManualResetEvent clientDone = new ManualResetEvent(false);

    public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
    {
        SocketAsyncEventArgs socketEventArg = new SocketAsyncEventArgs();
		    DnsEndPoint hostEntry = new DnsEndPoint("http://www.contoso.com", 80);

        // Create a socket and connect to the server
        Socket sock = new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);

        socketEventArg.Completed += new EventHandler<SocketAsyncEventArgs>(SocketEventArg_Completed);

        socketEventArg.RemoteEndPoint = hostEntry;
        socketEventArg.UserToken = sock;
        sock.ConnectAsync(socketEventArg);
        clientDone.WaitOne();
    }

    static void SocketEventArg_Completed(object sender, SocketAsyncEventArgs e)
    {
         if (e.LastOperation == SocketAsyncOperation.Connect) {
           if (e.SocketError == SocketError.Success)
            {
                // Successfully connected to the server

            }
            else
            {
	   	          // Throw the WebException with no parameters.
		            throw new WebException();
		        }
		     } 
		     // socket operation not a connect!  
         else
            throw new Exception("Invalid operation completed");
    }
  }
