WebRequest.Create WebRequest.Create WebRequest.Create WebRequest.Create Method

Definition

Initializes a new WebRequest.

Overloads

Create(String) Create(String) Create(String) Create(String)

Initializes a new WebRequest instance for the specified URI scheme.

Create(Uri) Create(Uri) Create(Uri) Create(Uri)

Initializes a new WebRequest instance for the specified URI scheme.

Create(String) Create(String) Create(String) Create(String)

Initializes a new WebRequest instance for the specified URI scheme.

public:
 static System::Net::WebRequest ^ Create(System::String ^ requestUriString);
public static System.Net.WebRequest Create (string requestUriString);
static member Create : string -> System.Net.WebRequest
Public Shared Function Create (requestUriString As String) As WebRequest

Parameters

requestUriString
String String String String

The URI that identifies the Internet resource.

Returns

A WebRequest descendant for the specific URI scheme.

Exceptions

The request scheme specified in requestUriString has not been registered.

The caller does not have WebPermissionAttribute permission to connect to the requested URI or a URI that the request is redirected to.

In the .NET for Windows Store apps or the Portable Class Library, catch the base class exception, FormatException, instead.

The URI specified in requestUriString is not a valid URI.

Examples

The following example uses Create to instantiate an HttpWebRequest instance. A string representing the target URL is used as the constructor parameter.

Uri^ ourUri = gcnew Uri( url );

// Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url.
WebRequest^ myWebRequest = WebRequest::Create( url );

// Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response.
WebResponse^ myWebResponse = myWebRequest->GetResponse();

// Use "ResponseUri" property to get the actual Uri from where the response was attained.
if ( ourUri->Equals( myWebResponse->ResponseUri ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRequest Url : {0} was not redirected", url );
}
else
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRequest Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", url, myWebResponse->ResponseUri );
}

// Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse->Close();
Uri ourUri = new Uri(url);            

// Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url. 
WebRequest myWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url); 

// Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response.
WebResponse myWebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse(); 

// Use "ResponseUri" property to get the actual Uri from where the response was attained.
if (ourUri.Equals(myWebResponse.ResponseUri))
	Console.WriteLine("\nRequest Url : {0} was not redirected",url);   
else
	Console.WriteLine("\nRequest Url : {0} was redirected to {1}",url,myWebResponse.ResponseUri);   
// Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse.Close(); 


Dim ourUri As New Uri(url)
' Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url. 

Dim myWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url)

' Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response.
Dim myWebResponse As WebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse()

' "ResponseUri" property is used to get the actual Uri from where the response was attained.
If ourUri.Equals(myWebResponse.ResponseUri) Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Request Url : {0} was not redirected", url)
Else
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Request Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", url, myWebResponse.ResponseUri)
End If 

' Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse.Close()

Remarks

The Create method returns a descendant of the WebRequest class determined at run time as the closest registered match for requestUri.

For example, when a URI beginning with http:// or https:// is passed in requestUri, an HttpWebRequest is returned by Create. If a URI beginning with ftp:// is passed instead, the Create method will return a FtpWebRequest instance. If a URI beginning with file:// is passed instead, the Create method will return a FileWebRequest instance.

The pre-registered reserve types already registered include the following:

  • http://

  • https://

  • ftp://

  • file://

.NET includes support for the http://, https://, ftp://, and file:// URI schemes. Custom WebRequest descendants to handle other requests are registered with the RegisterPrefix method.

The Create method uses the requestUriString parameter to create a Uri instance that it passes to the new WebRequest.

Initializes a new WebRequest instance for the specified URI scheme.

public:
 static System::Net::WebRequest ^ Create(Uri ^ requestUri);
public static System.Net.WebRequest Create (Uri requestUri);
static member Create : Uri -> System.Net.WebRequest
Public Shared Function Create (requestUri As Uri) As WebRequest

Parameters

requestUri
Uri Uri Uri Uri

A Uri containing the URI of the requested resource.

Returns

A WebRequest descendant for the specified URI scheme.

Exceptions

The request scheme specified in requestUri is not registered.

The caller does not have WebPermissionAttribute permission to connect to the requested URI or a URI that the request is redirected to.

Examples

The following example uses Create to instantiate an HttpWebRequest instance. A Uri representing the target URL is used as the constructor parameter.

// Create a new 'Uri' object with the specified string.
Uri^ myUri = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com" );
// Create a new request to the above mentioned URL.
WebRequest^ myWebRequest = WebRequest::Create( myUri );
// Assign the response object of 'WebRequest' to a 'WebResponse' variable.
WebResponse^ myWebResponse = myWebRequest->GetResponse();
// Create a new 'Uri' object with the specified string.
Uri myUri =new Uri("http://www.contoso.com");
// Create a new request to the above mentioned URL.	
WebRequest myWebRequest= WebRequest.Create(myUri);
// Assign the response object of 'WebRequest' to a 'WebResponse' variable.
WebResponse myWebResponse= myWebRequest.GetResponse();
' Create a new 'Uri' object with the specified string.
Dim myUri As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com")
' Create a new request to the above mentioned URL.	
Dim myWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(myUri)
'  Assign the response object of 'WebRequest' to a 'WebResponse' variable.
Dim myWebResponse As WebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse()

Remarks

The Create method returns a descendant of the WebRequest class determined at run time as the closest registered match for requestUri.

For example, if you create a WebRequest descendant, Handler1, to handle requests to http://www.contoso.com/text/ and another named Handler2 to handle requests to http://www.contoso.com/code/, you can use Create method to return the WebRequest descendant associated with either specified URI.

To return a descendant of the WebRequest class based on only the scheme portion of a URI, use the CreateDefault method.

For example, when a URI beginning with http:// or https:// is passed in requestUri, an HttpWebRequest is returned by Create. If a URI beginning with ftp:// is passed instead, the Create method will return a FileWebRequest instance. If a URI beginning with file:// is passed instead, the Create method will return a FileWebRequest instance.

The pre-registered reserve types already registered include the following:

  • http://

  • https://

  • ftp://

  • file://

.NET includes support for the http://, https://, ftp://, and file:// URI schemes. Custom WebRequest descendants to handle other requests are registered with the RegisterPrefix method.
