Checking HTTP Status Code in Selenium

How to get the HTTP status code in Selenium?

E.g. so I can test that if the browser requests /user/27 and no user with ID=27 exists, an HTTP 404 is returned?

My primary interest is Selenium RC, but if someone knows the answer for “normal” selenium, I can probably easily translate it into RC.

This might not be the best use of Selenium for this type of test. There is unnecessary need to load a browser when you could do and have a faster running test

[Test]
[ExpectedException(typeof(WebException), UserMessage = "The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found")]
public void ShouldThrowA404()
{
HttpWebRequest task; //For Calling the page
HttpWebResponse taskresponse = null; //Response returned
task
= (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://foo.bar/thiswontexistevenifiwishedonedayitwould.html");
taskresponse
= (HttpWebResponse)task.GetResponse();
}

If your test is redirecting to another page during a 404 Selenium could check the final page has what you expect.
