IHttpHandler.IsReusable Property

Gets a value indicating whether another request can use the IHttpHandler instance.

Namespace:  System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
bool IsReusable { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the IHttpHandler instance is reusable; otherwise, false.

You explicitly set the IsReusable property to true or false by code you provide that overrides the IsReusable property accessor (getter).

The following code example writes four lines of text to the HTTP output stream in response to a client request for a page named handler.aspx. All requests for handler.aspx are serviced by the MyHttpHandler class in the namespace HandlerExample contained in the assembly HandlerTest.dll.

// Name this C# file HandlerTest.cs and compile it with the 
// command line: csc /t:library /r:System.Web.dll HandlerTest.cs. 
// Copy HandlerTest.dll to your \bin directory. 

using System.Web;

namespace HandlerExample
{
   public class MyHttpHandler : IHttpHandler
   {
      // Override the ProcessRequest method. 
      public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
      {
         context.Response.Write("<H1>This is an HttpHandler Test.</H1>");      
         context.Response.Write("<p>Your Browser:</p>");
         context.Response.Write("Type: " + context.Request.Browser.Type + "<br>");
         context.Response.Write("Version: " + context.Request.Browser.Version);
      }

      // Override the IsReusable property. 
      public bool IsReusable
      {
         get { return true; }
      }
   }
}
