Get details of a WebException in C=

If a HTTP call fails with a HTTP 500 error, and throws a WebException, you know something’s gone wrong, but sometimes the response from the server can explain more about what screwed up. I found myself writing this code over and over again, so here’s a single method that handles it;

private static string GetExceptionDetails(WebException exception)
string strResult = “”;
if (exception.Response != null)
var responseStream = exception.Response.GetResponseStream();
if (responseStream != null)
using (var reader = new StreamReader(responseStream))
strResult = reader.ReadToEnd();
return strResult;

Hope this helps solve your web related problems!
