I'm flipping out over this.

How can you get this super simple piece of code to actually return the formatted content that it should?


    public class MessageHandler : DelegatingHandler    {       

protected override System.Threading.Tasks.Task<HttpResponseMessage> SendAsync(HttpRequestMessage request, System.Threading.CancellationToken cancellationToken)        {

            return Task.Factory.StartNew<HttpResponseMessage>(() =>            { 

              var msg = new ErrorMsg();               

msg.Something = "x";               

r.Content = new StringContent(new ObjectContent(msg.GetType(), msg).ReadAsStringAsync().Result);               

return x.Result;           



    public class ErrorMsg    {       

public string Something { get; set; }

I don't know why but the WYSIWYG formatter won't let me post code in chrome.

... and I get an error visiting codeplex on firefox.
