I am unable to read the chunk size of the first chunk from a webresponse stream.
What am I missing ?

Here is my code, in hexChunkSizeCount I am expecting in hex format the chunk size.
Instead I am getting the contents of the first chunk.
WebResponse response = webRequest.GetResponse();
Stream chunkedStream = response.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(chunkedStream);
string hexChunkSizeCount = sr.ReadLine(); // expecting chunk size, but getting chunk content

sr.ReadLine(); will give back content, as designed.
Details here: MSDN: StreamReader.Read Method [^]

If you need any info around size, the internal buffer size of a StreamReader is 2k. Refer: StreamReader and buffer in C#[^]
