WebException WebException WebException WebException Class

Definition

The exception that is thrown when an error occurs while accessing the network through a pluggable protocol.

public ref class WebException : InvalidOperationException
[Serializable]

type WebException = class
    inherit InvalidOperationException
    interface ISerializable

Remarks

The WebException class is thrown by classes descended from WebRequest and WebResponse that implement pluggable protocols for accessing the Internet.

When WebException is thrown by a descendant of the WebRequest class, the Response property provides the Internet response to the application.

Associated Tips

Check the Response property of the exception to determine why the request failed.
When a WebException exception is thrown by a descendent of the WebRequest class, the Response property provides the Internet response to the application.

Check the Status property of the exception to determine why the request failed.
The Status property of the exception provides status information for the error. For more information, see WebExceptionStatus.

If you are timing out when stepping into an XML Web Service, set the timeout value for the XML Web Service call to infinite.
