HttpWebRequest.Pipelined HttpWebRequest.Pipelined HttpWebRequest.Pipelined HttpWebRequest.Pipelined Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to pipeline the request to the Internet resource.

 property bool Pipelined { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool Pipelined { get; set; }
member this.Pipelined : bool with get, set
Public Property Pipelined As Boolean

Property Value

true if the request should be pipelined; otherwise, false. The default is true.


The following code example prints the value of the Pipelined property to the console.

// Display the contents of the page to the console.

An application uses the Pipelined property to indicate a preference for pipelined connections. When Pipelined is true, an application makes pipelined connections to the servers that support them.

Pipelined connections are made only when the KeepAlive property is also true.
