IHttpContext::GetScriptName Method

IIS 7.0

Retrieves the URL for the current request.

virtual PCWSTR GetScriptName(
   DWORD* pcchScriptName = NULL
) const = 0;


A pointer to a DWORD value that receives the length of the returned string.

A pointer to a string that contains the name of the current script.

The GetScriptName method is used to retrieve a pointer to a buffer that contains the URL of the current request.


The server owns the lifetime of this pointer.


The following code example demonstrates how to use the GetScriptName method to create an HTTP module that retrieves the name of the current script. The module returns that information to a Web client and then exits.

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.
