I am trying to get the response code from the following code:  It should return a 204 response, but how do I get the response code?

        Dim myReq As HttpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(Urlstr), HttpWebRequest)
        myReq.Method = "POST"
        myReq.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8"
        Dim bytes As Byte()
        bytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(myInspection)
        Dim mylogin As String
        myloginDetails = myUserName & ":" & myPassword
        mylogin = Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(myloginDetails))
        myReq.Headers.Add(HttpRequestHeader.Authorization, mylogin)
        objRequestStream = myReq.GetRequestStream()

        objRequestStream.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length)
        objRequestStream.Close()

After you've written to the request stream, you need to issue the request and get the HttpWebResponse back which you do like:
Dim response As HttpWebResponse = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
Dim status As HttpStatusCode = response.StatusCode
