WebRequest.ConnectionGroupName Property


When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the name of the connection group for the request.

 virtual property System::String ^ ConnectionGroupName { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public virtual string? ConnectionGroupName { get; set; }
public virtual string ConnectionGroupName { get; set; }
member this.ConnectionGroupName : string with get, set
Public Overridable Property ConnectionGroupName As String

Property Value


The name of the connection group for the request.


Any attempt is made to get or set the property, when the property is not overridden in a descendant class.


The ConnectionGroupName property associates specific requests within an application to one or more connection pools.


The WebRequest class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebRequest instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by the WebRequest.Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and FileWebRequest.

Notes to Inheritors

The ConnectionGroupName property typically associates a group of requests that share a set of credentials with a connection to an Internet resource to avoid potential security failures.
