matlab.net.http.field.GenericField class

Package: matlab.net.http.field
Superclasses: matlab.net.http.HeaderField

HTTP header field with any name and value

Description

Use a GenericField header field for testing or to work around a built-in restriction that might not be appropriate for your application. The HeaderField class and its subclasses validate the Value property for the given Name property. To override a Value that might otherwise be rejected, create a GenericField header field.

If a header field in a response message contains a value that is not valid for the field name, then MATLAB® creates a GenericField object.

A Content-Length header field must contain a number.

The following statement generates an error.

field = matlab.net.http.field.ContentLengthField('abc');

For a character value, create a GenericField object.

field = matlab.net.http.field.GenericField('Content-Length','abc');
