HttpResponse C Reference Documentation

HttpResponse

Current Version: 9.5.0.73

Represents a complete HTTP response.

Create/Dispose

HCkHttpResponse instance = CkHttpResponse_Create();
// ...
CkHttpResponse_Dispose(instance);
HCkHttpResponse CkHttpResponse_Create(void);

Creates an instance of the HCkHttpResponse object and returns a handle ("void *" pointer). The handle is passed in the 1st argument for the functions listed on this page.

void CkHttpResponse_Dispose(HCkHttpResponse handle);

Objects created by calling CkHttpResponse_Create must be freed by calling this method. A memory leak occurs if a handle is not disposed by calling this function. Also, any handle returned by a Chilkat "C" function must also be freed by the application by calling the appropriate Dispose method, such as CkHttpResponse_Dispose.

Properties

Body
void CkHttpResponse_getBody(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkByteData retval);

The response body returned as a byte array.

top
BodyQP
void CkHttpResponse_getBodyQP(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_bodyQP(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The same as the Body property, but returned as a quoted-printable encoded string.

top
BodyStr
void CkHttpResponse_getBodyStr(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_bodyStr(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The response body returned as a string.

top
Charset
void CkHttpResponse_getCharset(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_charset(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The response charset, such as "iso-8859-1", if applicable. Obviously, responses for GIF and JPG files will not have a charset.

top
ContentLength
unsigned long CkHttpResponse_getContentLength(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The content length of the response, in bytes.

top
ContentLength64
__int64 CkHttpResponse_getContentLength64(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The content length of the response, in number of bytes, returned as a 64-bit integer.

top
Date
void CkHttpResponse_getDate(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, SYSTEMTIME * retval);
This property is deprecated. It will be removed in a future version.

The Date response header field, returned in a date/time data type.

top
DateStr
void CkHttpResponse_getDateStr(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_dateStr(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Returns the content of the Date response header field in RFC822 date/time string format.

top
DebugLogFilePath
void CkHttpResponse_getDebugLogFilePath(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
void CkHttpResponse_putDebugLogFilePath(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, const char *newVal);
const char *CkHttpResponse_debugLogFilePath(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

top
Domain
void CkHttpResponse_getDomain(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_domain(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The domain of the HTTP server that created this response.

top

const char *CkHttpResponse_finalRedirectUrl(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

Returns the redirect URL for 301/302 responses.

top
FullMime
void CkHttpResponse_getFullMime(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_fullMime(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Returns the full MIME (header + body) of the HTTP response.

top
Header

top
LastErrorHtml
void CkHttpResponse_getLastErrorHtml(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_lastErrorHtml(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorText
void CkHttpResponse_getLastErrorText(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_lastErrorText(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorXml
void CkHttpResponse_getLastErrorXml(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_lastErrorXml(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastMethodSuccess
BOOL CkHttpResponse_getLastMethodSuccess(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);
void CkHttpResponse_putLastMethodSuccess(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, BOOL newVal);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of TRUE indicates success, a value of FALSE indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = TRUE and failure = FALSE.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to TRUE. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
NumCookies
int CkHttpResponse_getNumCookies(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The number of cookies included in the response.

top
NumHeaderFields
int CkHttpResponse_getNumHeaderFields(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The number of response header fields.

top
StatusCode
int CkHttpResponse_getStatusCode(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

top
StatusLine
void CkHttpResponse_getStatusLine(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_statusLine(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

The first line of an HTTP response, such as "HTTP/1.0 200 OK".

top
StatusText
void CkHttpResponse_getStatusText(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, HCkString retval);
const char *CkHttpResponse_statusText(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

top
Utf8
BOOL CkHttpResponse_getUtf8(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);
void CkHttpResponse_putUtf8(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, BOOL newVal);

When set to TRUE, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to FALSE (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to TRUE, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to FALSE, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.

top
VerboseLogging
BOOL CkHttpResponse_getVerboseLogging(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);
void CkHttpResponse_putVerboseLogging(HCkHttpResponse cHandle, BOOL newVal);

If set to TRUE, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is FALSE. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

top

const char *CkHttpResponse_version(HCkHttpResponse cHandle);

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"
