HttpContext.Request Property

Gets the HttpRequest object for the current HTTP request.

Namespace: System.Web
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public HttpRequest Request { get; }
/** @property */
public HttpRequest get_Request ()

public function get Request () : HttpRequest

Not applicable.

Property Value

The HttpRequest for the current HTTP request.

The Request property provides programmatic access to the properties and methods of the HttpRequest class. Because ASP.NET pages contain a default reference to the System.Web namespace (which contains the HttpContext class), you can reference the members of HttpRequest on an .aspx page without using the fully qualified class reference to HttpContext. For example, you can use Request.Browser to get the capabilities of the client browser. However, if you want to use the members of HttpRequest from an ASP.NET code-behind module, you must include a reference to the System.Web namespace in the module and a fully qualified reference to both the currently active request/response context and the class in System.Web that you want to use. For example, in a code-behind page you must specify the fully qualified name HttpContext.Current.Request.Browser.
