The Contents collection contains all the items that have been added to the application through a script command. You can use the Contents collection to obtain a list of items that have been given application scope or to specify a particular item to be the target of an operation. You can also remove items from the collection by using the Remove and RemoveAll methods.
The Contents collection contains those items that have been declared at the application level without using the <OBJECT> tags. This would include both objects created by using Server.CreateObject, as well as scalar variables established through an Application declaration. In the following script, for example, both "strHello" and objCustom would be members of the Contents collection.
<% Application("strHello") = "Hello" Set Application("objCustom") = Server.CreateObject("MyComponent") %>
<% Application("strText1") = "1234567890" Application("strText2") = "ABCDEFGHIJ" Application("strText3") = "A1B2C3D4E5" %> <% For Each Key in Application.Contents Response.Write Key + " = " + Application(Key) + "<BR>" Next %> <% For intItem = 1 to Application.Contents.Count Response.Write CStr(intItem) + " = " Response.Write Application.Contents(intItem) + "<BR>" Next %>
