DelegatingHandler DelegatingHandler DelegatingHandler DelegatingHandler Class


A type for HTTP handlers that delegate the processing of HTTP response messages to another handler, called the inner handler.

public ref class DelegatingHandler abstract : System::Net::Http::HttpMessageHandler
public abstract class DelegatingHandler : System.Net.Http.HttpMessageHandler
type DelegatingHandler = class
    inherit HttpMessageHandler
Public MustInherit Class DelegatingHandler
Inherits HttpMessageHandler


An application should provide an inner handler either in the constructor or through the InnerHandler property before calling SendAsync; otherwise, an InvalidOperationException will be thrown.

Note that InnerHandler property may be a delegating handler as well. This approach allows the creation of handler stacks to process the HTTP response messages.
