handling exception error http
Posted on 2011-09-06
I am in a situation where when I get an HTTP 400 code from the server, it is a completely legal way of the server telling me what was wrong with my request (using a message in the HTTP response content) and i want to retrieve this message.
However, the .NET HttpWebRequest raises an exception when the status code is 400.
How do I handle this? For me a 400 is completely legal, and rather helpful. The HTTP content has some important information but the exception throws me off my path
