public bool SendChunked { get; set; }
member this.SendChunked : bool with get, set
Public Property SendChunked As Boolean
Property Value

true to send data to the Internet resource in segments; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example sets the SendChunked property to true so that data can be sent in segments to the Internet resource.

// A new 'HttpWebRequest' object is created.
HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest^)( WebRequest::Create( myUri ) );
myHttpWebRequest->SendChunked = true;

Remarks

When SendChunked is true, the request sends data to the Internet resource in segments. The Internet resource must support receiving chunked data.

Changing the SendChunked property after the request has been started by calling the GetRequestStream, BeginGetRequestStream, GetResponse, or BeginGetResponse method throws an InvalidOperationException.
