Return HTML Page Source From Web URL in C#

Standard

Below is a snippet of code showing how to retrieve the page source of a web page. This code will return the HTML source from the home page on this site. It will then load that HTML into the stringĀ myPageSource.

using System.Net;
using System.Xml;
using System.IO; 

string url = "http://yahoo.com";

HttpWebRequest myWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(url);
myWebRequest.Method = "GET";

// make request for web page
HttpWebResponse myWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myWebRequest.GetResponse();
StreamReader myWebSource = new StreamReader(myWebResponse.GetResponseStream());
string myPageSource = myWebSource.ReadToEnd();
myWebResponse.Close();
