Warning

(This API is obsolete and has been removed. Please use System.Net.Http.HttpRequestMessage or Windows.Web.Http.HttpRequestMessage directly)

The HttpHelperRequest represents an HTTP request message including headers.

var request = new HttpHelperRequest(uri, HttpMethod.Get);
Dim request = New HttpHelperRequest(uri, HttpMethod.[Get])

Constructors

The HttpHelperRequest class has these constructors.

Constructor Description
HttpHelperRequest(Uri) Initializes a new instance of the HttpHelperRequest class with an HTTP Get method and a request Uri.
HttpHelperRequest(HttpMethod, Uri) Initializes a new instance of the HttpRequestMessage class with an HTTP method and a request Uri.

Methods

The HttpHelperRequest class has these methods. It also inherits from Object class.

Method Description
ToHttpRequestMessage() Returns an instance of HttpRequestMessage representing current HttpHelperRequest object.
Dispose() Performs tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
ToString() Returns a string that represents the current HttpHelperRequest object.

Properties

Property Type Description
Content IHttpContent Gets or sets the HTTP content to send to the server on the HTTP request
Headers HttpRequestHeaderCollection Gets the collection of the HTTP request headers associated with the request
Method HttpMethod Gets the HTTP method to be performed on the request URI
RequestUri Uri Gets the Uri used for the HTTP request

Remarks

The HttpHelperRequest class contains headers, the HTTP verb, and potentially data. An app starts by using one of the HttpHelperRequest constructors to create an HttpRequestHelper instance. The app then sets various properties on the HttpRequestHelper as needed. Then the HttpRequestHelper is passed as a parameter to the HttpHelper.SendRequestAsync method.

Example

var request = new HttpHelperRequest(uri, HttpMethod.Get);
request.Headers.Authorization = new Windows.Web.Http.Headers.HttpCredentialsHeaderValue("OAuth", authorizationHeaderParams);
Dim request = New HttpHelperRequest(uri, HttpMethod.[Get])
request.Headers.Authorization = New Windows.Web.Http.Headers.HttpCredentialsHeaderValue("OAuth", authorizationHeaderParams)
