Examples

This example creates a HttpWebRequest and queries for an HttpWebResponse and then checks to see whether the original URI was redirected by the server.

Uri^ myUri = gcnew Uri( url );
// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object for the specified url.
HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest^)( WebRequest::Create( myUri ) );
// Send the request and wait for response.
HttpWebResponse^ myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse^)( myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse() );
if ( myHttpWebResponse->StatusCode == HttpStatusCode::OK )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRequest succeeded and the requested information is in the response , Description : {0}",
      myHttpWebResponse->StatusDescription );
}
if ( myUri->Equals( myHttpWebResponse->ResponseUri ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nThe Request Uri was not redirected by the server" );
}
else
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nThe Request Uri was redirected to : {0}", myHttpWebResponse->ResponseUri );
}
// Release resources of response Object*.
myHttpWebResponse->Close();
Uri myUri = new Uri(url);
// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object for the specified url. 
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(myUri); 
// Send the request and wait for response.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(); 
if (myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK)
             Console.WriteLine("\nRequest succeeded and the requested information is in the response ,Description : {0}",
						myHttpWebResponse.StatusDescription);
if (myUri.Equals(myHttpWebResponse.ResponseUri))
	Console.WriteLine("\nThe Request Uri was not redirected by the server");
else
	Console.WriteLine("\nThe Request Uri was redirected to :{0}",myHttpWebResponse.ResponseUri);
// Release resources of response object.
myHttpWebResponse.Close(); 
Dim myUri As New Uri(url)
' Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object for the specified url 
Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(myUri), HttpWebRequest)
' Send the request and wait for response.
Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
If myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Request succeeded and the requested information is in the response , Description : {0}", myHttpWebResponse.StatusDescription)
End If
If myUri.Equals(myHttpWebResponse.ResponseUri) Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The Request Uri was not redirected by the server")
Else
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The Request Uri was redirected to :{0}", myHttpWebResponse.ResponseUri)
End If
' Release resources of response object.
myHttpWebResponse.Close()

Remarks

The ResponseUri property contains the URI of the Internet resource that actually responded to the request. This URI might not be the same as the originally requested URI, if the original server redirected the request.

The ResponseUri property will use the Content-Location header if present.

Applications that need to access the last redirected ResponseUri should use the HttpWebRequest.Address property rather than ResponseUri, since the use of ResponseUri property may open security vulnerabilities.
