HttpWebRequest & WebClient

Postby sylvain » Sat Sep 26, 2015 9:13 am


In the dotNet framework, the implementation of WebClient is based on HttpWebRequest.

Is it the same in cshtml5, and can I use HttpWebRequest directly?
Are there any limitations when using it (in particular: can I use it for streaming too)?

Hi sylvain

Thanks a lot for your message.

The HttpWebRequest class is still under development and is expected to be available in either the Beta 6 (Q4 2015) or the Beta 7 (Q1 2016). As you know, only the WebClient class can be used at the moment.

For reference, this is the page where you will find tutorials for using the WebClient class:
(see the section about REST calls)

That's nice anyway to know that HttpWebRequest will come! ;)

Will streaming/chunked encoding be supported?
