WebService.Context Property

Gets the ASP.NET HttpContext for the current request, which encapsulates all HTTP-specific context used by the HTTP server to process Web requests.

Namespace:  System.Web.Services
Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)
[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public HttpContext Context { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.HttpContext
The ASP.NET HttpContext for the current request.
ExceptionCondition
Exception

Context is null.

XML Web service methods that have either the SoapRpcMethodAttribute or SoapDocumentMethodAttribute attribute applied to them with the OneWay property of set to true, do not have access to their HttpContext using the static Current property. To access the HttpContext, derive the class implementing the XML Web service method from WebService and access the Context property.

The Example below uses the Context property to obtain the time of the request on the server.

<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Util" %>

 using System;
 using System.Web.Services;

 public class Util: WebService {
   [ WebMethod(Description="Returns the time as stored on the Server",
   EnableSession=false)]
   public string Time() {
      return Context.Timestamp.TimeOfDay.ToString();
   }
 }
