(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Get Size of File on Web Server

Demonstrates how to send a HEAD request to fetch information about a file on a web server, which hopefully includes the Content-Length in the response header.

' This example assumes the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Dim http As New Chilkat.Http

Dim resp As Chilkat.HttpResponse = Await http.GetHeadAsync("https://nodejs.org/dist/v10.16.1/node-v10.16.1-win-x64.zip")
If (http.LastMethodSuccess = False) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(http.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


' Examine the response header.
Debug.WriteLine(resp.Header)

' Here is a sample response header:

' Get the Content-Length header.
Dim contentLengthStr As String = resp.GetHeaderField("Content-Length")
' If the header exists...
If (resp.LastMethodSuccess = True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine("Content-Length: " & contentLengthStr)
    ' Your application can convert the contentLengthStr to an integer and then use it....
