IHttpContext::GetSite Method

IIS 7.0

Retrieves the site information container for the current context.

virtual IHttpSite* GetSite(
   VOID
) = 0;

This method takes no parameters.

A pointer to an IHttpSite interface.

The GetSite method retrieves a pointer to an IHttpSite interface, which can retrieve additional information about the Web site that is processing the request, for the current context. For example, you could create an HTTP module that uses the IHttpSite::GetSiteId method to retrieve the site ID.

NoteNote:

The HTTP context object owns the lifetime of this object. Therefore, you do not free this pointer when you write HTTP modules.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the GetSite method to create an HTTP module that retrieves an IHttpSite interface. The module uses the IHttpSite::GetSiteName method to retrieve the name of the Web site for the current request, and then it returns the name of the Web site to a Web client.

#define _WINSOCKAPI_
#include <windows.h>
#include <sal.h>
#include <httpserv.h>

Your module must export the RegisterModule function. You can export this function by creating a module definition (.def) file for your project, or you can compile the module by using the /EXPORT:RegisterModule switch. For more information, see Walkthrough: Creating a Request-Level HTTP Module By Using Native Code.

You can optionally compile the code by using the __stdcall (/Gz) calling convention instead of explicitly declaring the calling convention for each function.
