HttpWebRequest.Abort Method

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

Cancels a request to an Internet resource.

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

public override void Abort()


This method is not implemented.

The Abort method cancels a request to a resource. After a request is canceled, calling the BeginGetResponse, EndGetResponse, BeginGetRequestStream, or EndGetRequestStream method causes a WebException with the Status property set to RequestCanceled.

In the case of asynchronous requests, it is the responsibility of the client application to implement its own time-out mechanism.
