XMLHttpRequest Equivalent in C#

I have to create a simple winform which will take in the URL and the input request XML as a parameter and once the user hits the Submit button, the response has to be submitted in a text box. I implemented the same in a .html file and the sequence of operations after the Submit button is hit is shown below:

document.forms["testForm"].resultXML.value = 'Please Wait....'

              var xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest()

            xmlhttp.open("POST", document.forms["testForm"].uri.value,true);

            xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Man", "POST " + document.forms["testForm"].uri.value + "HTTP/1.1")

            xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("MessageType", "CALL")

             xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml")


             xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {

                   document.forms["testForm"].resultXML.value = xmlhttp.responseText



Sample code in C# will be helpful to do the above operations.

I got the answer myself:

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
            byte[] requestBytes = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(requestXML);
            request.Method = "POST";
            request.ContentType = "text/xml;charset=utf-8";
            request.ContentLength = requestBytes.Length;
            Stream requestStream = request.GetRequestStream();
            requestStream.Write(requestBytes, 0, requestBytes.Length);

            HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
            StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream(), System.Text.Encoding.Default);
            string responseXML = sr.ReadToEnd();

The response time was slow and I could get the answer myself after a bit of searching on the internet
