Receive Post

I need to build a page to receive XML data via a POST method and return a status code. I've managed to get my code working as part of a normal aspx page, but seem to be having issues with returning the status. When I read the response from my test page (submitted via php) I am getting the html content of the page, not the status code. How do I need to build my receiving page to make this work properly?

Are you setting the status in your ASP.NET page?
Response.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK

Open in new window

Enumeration documentation here: HttpStatusCode

Ok, that gets me much closer. Now I'm receiving my StatusCode back, but it appears that my try/catch isn't working like I'm used to in windows applications. What is the proper way to handle errors in my codebehind? How do I stop the procedure from executing and return the value?
Yuor try/catch will work exactly the same as it always has regardless of whether we are in ASP.NET or WinForms or etc. However, Response.End does throw an exception (ThreadAbortException)... just catch that specific one and ignore it (or google for ways to avoid ThreadAbortException from Response.End)

*How do I stop the procedure from executing and return the value?* Without knowing much about your code, I can only suggest to do a "return" "exit sub" or "exit function"... not sure...

Thanks for you help with this. I didn't realize that Response.End was actually throwing and error, as soon as I accounted for that, it's working perfectly.
