Http Listener Context

Posted on 2013-06-21

My code below keeps stopping at the context line
Dim ctx As HttpListenerContext = listener.GetContext()

No just exits.

Any ideas?

        Using listener As New HttpListener()
            listener.AuthenticationSchemes = AuthenticationSchemes.Negotiate

            Dim ctx As HttpListenerContext = listener.GetContext()
            ctx.Response.StatusCode = 200
            Dim name As String = ctx.Request.QueryString("name")

            Dim writer As New StreamWriter(ctx.Response.OutputStream)
            writer.WriteLine("<P>Hello, {0}</P>", name)

            For Each header As String In ctx.Request.Headers.Keys
                writer.WriteLine("<li><b>{0}:</b> {1}</li>", header, ctx.Request.Headers(header))

        End Using

If you enclose it in try catch block then does it go to catch block?

That did it, and I found the error.
