HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult) Method

Definition

Ends an asynchronous request to an Internet resource.

public:
 override System::Net::WebResponse ^ EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult ^ asyncResult);
public override System.Net.WebResponse EndGetResponse (IAsyncResult asyncResult);
override this.EndGetResponse : IAsyncResult -> System.Net.WebResponse
Public Overrides Function EndGetResponse (asyncResult As IAsyncResult) As WebResponse

Parameters

asyncResult
IAsyncResult

The pending request for a response.

Returns

A WebResponse that contains the response from the Internet resource.

Exceptions

asyncResult is null.

This method was called previously using asyncResult.

-or-

The ContentLength property is greater than 0 but the data has not been written to the request stream.

Abort() was previously called.

-or-

An error occurred while processing the request.

asyncResult was not returned by the current instance from a call to BeginGetResponse(AsyncCallback, Object).

Examples

The following code example uses the EndGetResponse method to end an asynchronous request for an Internet resource.

   static void RespCallback( IAsyncResult^ asynchronousResult )
   {
      try
      {
         
         // State of request is asynchronous.
         RequestState^ myRequestState = dynamic_cast<RequestState^>(asynchronousResult->AsyncState);
         HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest2 = myRequestState->request;
         myRequestState->response = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(myHttpWebRequest2->EndGetResponse( asynchronousResult ));
         
         // Read the response into a Stream object.
         Stream^ responseStream = myRequestState->response->GetResponseStream();
         myRequestState->streamResponse = responseStream;
         
         // Begin the Reading of the contents of the HTML page and print it to the console.
         IAsyncResult^ asynchronousInputRead = responseStream->BeginRead( myRequestState->BufferRead, 0, BUFFER_SIZE, gcnew AsyncCallback( ReadCallBack ), myRequestState );
      }
      catch ( WebException^ e ) 
      {
         Console::WriteLine( "\nException raised!" );
         Console::WriteLine( "\nMessage: {0}", e->Message );
         Console::WriteLine( "\nStatus: {0}", e->Status );
      }

   }

   static void ReadCallBack( IAsyncResult^ asyncResult )

Remarks

The EndGetResponse method completes an asynchronous request for an Internet resource that was started by calling the BeginGetResponse method.

Caution

You must call the Close method to close the stream and release the connection. Failure to do so may cause your application to run out of connections.

Note

This member outputs trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing in the .NET Framework.
