Call another URL without opening a tab in web forms C# RRS feed

    I need kick off a URL in the code that is running within a schedule task that runs every 3 minutes.

    I do not need to do a Response.Redirect() because I do not need to navigate to the tab because the website that is making the call needs to continue. 

    What is the best way to do this via web forms and C#?

    I found the below code:

                            var request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(string.Format("{0}", urlToCall));
                            var response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

    But I do not care if I get a response or not. Is there a way I can just call the URL and not request a response back?

    Hi tvb2727,

    You could consider using ThreadPool to start a new thread to make your webrequest, because sending  request and receiving response is in another thread, it will not  disturb your  other operation in your main thread even though you receive the response.

    Below is  a sample to use thread pool in webform. After first step , the second step will run immediately and request will be sent in another thread.

     // the first step for example you write code 

    ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem( (obj) => { var req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(string.Format("{0}", "urltocall")); var response = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse(); }, null);
    // the second step for example you write

    Best regards,
