CHttpModule::OnPreExecuteRequestHandler Method

IIS 7.0

Represents the method that will handle a PreExecuteRequestHandler event, which occurs before IIS executes a request handler.

virtual REQUEST_NOTIFICATION_STATUS OnPreExecuteRequestHandler(
   IN IHttpContext* pHttpContext,
   IN IHttpEventProvider* pProvider


[IN] A pointer to an IHttpContext interface.


[IN] A pointer to an IHttpEventProvider interface.

When a request-level module is registered for the RQ_PRE_EXECUTE_REQUEST_HANDLER event notification, IIS will call the module's OnPreExecuteRequestHandler method before IIS calls the execute handler for a request.


Request-level modules can register for the PreExecuteRequestHandler event notification by registering for RQ_PRE_EXECUTE_REQUEST_HANDLER in the module's RegisterModule function.


The following code example demonstrates how to create a request-level HTTP module that registers for the RQ_PRE_EXECUTE_REQUEST_HANDLER event and post-event notifications. Before IIS calls an execute handler, IIS will call the example module's OnPreExecuteRequestHandler and OnPostPreExecuteRequestHandler methods. This method will write an entry in the application log of the Windows Event Viewer and then exit.

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.
