[UWP][C#] How can I retrieve ETag from HttpRequestMessage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for the ETag header in the HttpRequestMessage class. I am sending a message to a http server and I get a response but I cannot find the property anywhere. Do I need to add a header of my own or is this simply not available in the current UWP API's?

    Thanks

  • You need to handle it by yourself, see http://blog.kulman.sk/leveraging-etag-caching-in-windows-phone-and-windows-apps/

    By the way, the Windows.Web.Http.HttpClient should be the best choice, it has implemented some features for us automatically.
