Examples

The following example checks the string contained in Method, to determine the Http method invoked by the Web server.

try
{
   // Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL.
   HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest^)( WebRequest::Create( url ) );
   HttpWebResponse^ myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse^)( myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse() );
   String^ method;
   method = myHttpWebResponse->Method;
   if ( String::Compare( method, "GET" ) == 0 )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "\nThe 'GET' method was successfully invoked on the following Web Server : {0}",
         myHttpWebResponse->Server );
   }
   // Releases the resources of the response.
   myHttpWebResponse->Close();
}
catch ( WebException^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nWebException raised. The following error occurred : {0}", e->Status );
}
catch ( Exception^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nThe following Exception was raised : {0}", e->Message );
}
       try 
		  {	
           // Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. 
			HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url); 
			HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(); 
			string method ;
			method = myHttpWebResponse.Method;
			if (String.Compare(method,"GET") == 0)
				Console.WriteLine("\nThe 'GET' method was successfully invoked on the following Web Server : {0}",
								   myHttpWebResponse.Server);
			// Releases the resources of the response.
			myHttpWebResponse.Close();
         } 
	catch(WebException e) 
	   {
	        Console.WriteLine("\nWebException raised. The following error occurred : {0}",e.Status); 
          }
	catch(Exception e)
		{
			Console.WriteLine("\nThe following Exception was raised : {0}",e.Message);
		}
}
Try
      Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(url), HttpWebRequest)
      Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
      Dim method As String
      method = myHttpWebResponse.Method
      If [String].Compare(method, "GET") = 0 Then
          Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "The GET method was successfully invoked on the following Web Server : {0}", myHttpWebResponse.Server)
      End If
      ' Releases the resources of the response.
      myHttpWebResponse.Close()
  Catch e As WebException
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "Exception Raised. The following error occurred : {0}", e.Status)
  Catch e As Exception
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "The following exception was raised : {0}", e.Message)
  End Try
