Description moljac 2012-06-16 16:13:24 UTC

Component is System.Net actually...

Just took MonoTouch sample from Frank Krueger form github https://github.com/praeclarum/odata

and in following function:

		static string ReadResponse (HttpWebRequest req)
			using (var resp = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse ()) {
				var ct = resp.Headers[HttpRequestHeader.ContentType];
				var enc = GetEncoding (ct);

				using (var r = new System.IO.StreamReader (resp.GetResponseStream (), enc)) {
					return r.ReadToEnd ();

   var ct = resp.Headers[HttpRequestHeader.ContentType] ;

throws under .net, but not mono.
Exception is:
  {"This collection holds response headers and cannot contain the specified request header."}	

it does not throw if changed to:

     var ct = resp.Headers[HttpResponseHeader.ContentType] ;
