Examples

The following code example checks the HaveResponse property to determine if a response has been received from an Internet resource.

      // Create a new 'HttpWebRequest' Object.
      HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create( "http://www.contoso.com" ));
      HttpWebResponse^ myHttpWebResponse;
      
      // Display the 'HaveResponse' property of the 'HttpWebRequest' object to the console.
      Console::WriteLine( "\nThe value of 'HaveResponse' property before a response object is obtained : {0}", myHttpWebRequest->HaveResponse );
      
      // Assign the response object of 'HttpWebRequest' to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable.
      myHttpWebResponse = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());
      if ( myHttpWebRequest->HaveResponse )
      {
         Stream^ streamResponse = myHttpWebResponse->GetResponseStream();
         StreamReader^ streamRead = gcnew StreamReader( streamResponse );
         array<Char>^readBuff = gcnew array<Char>(256);
         int count = streamRead->Read( readBuff, 0, 256 );
         Console::WriteLine( "\nThe contents of Html Page are :  \n" );

            Console::Write( outputData );
            count = streamRead->Read( readBuff, 0, 256 );
         }
