Headers in Response

Sep 8, 2011 at 8:47 PM

As a suggestion/question/request are you considering adding headers to the LoadRequestResult rather than just the response stream?

This looks like an excellent framework but the first webservice I tried it with unfortunately returns the login details in the HTTP headers which from looking at the code doesn't look like they'll be passed on.

Hi -

The way to handle this is to encode that information into the stream by writing a custom WebLoadRequest that reads the headers and adds that information in.  It's a little inefficient to encode into a stream then decode it, but it's necessary because that stream will be written to disk as a cache.  When you load from a cache later, those headers won't be present, and if they are necessary then, you won't have the headers anyway.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense.
