HTTP Properties Functions

You can use the Request object to retrieve various types of HTTP Request object properties and platform application values. The client browser passes this information to the server during an HTTP interaction, so this object contains information regarding the browser and session. These methods return a null value when no HTTP Request object exists or if the given value does not exist in the header object.
