IHttpContext::GetExecuteFlags Method

IHttpContext::GetExecuteFlags Method

IIS 7.0

Retrieves the execution flags for the current context.

virtual DWORD GetExecuteFlags(
) const = 0;

This method takes no parameters.

A DWORD that contains the execution flags.

The GetExecuteFlags method retrieves the execution flags for the current context. The following table lists the possible values for these flags.




Suppress the HTTP headers for the child request.


Ignore the current script map handler for this request chain.


Execute the request even if the child request is not in the same application pool.


Disable custom errors for the child request.


The URL for the child request is the same as the parent request.


Do not flush the child response; return the response to the parent request.


The child response is still eligible for caching by Http.sys.


The following code example demonstrates how to create an HTTP module that performs the following tasks:

  1. The module registers for the RQ_SEND_RESPONSE notification.

  2. The module creates a CHttpModule class that contains an OnSendResponse method.

  3. When a Web client requests a URL, IIS calls the module's OnSendResponse method. This method performs the following tasks:

    1. Clears the existing response buffer and sets the MIME type for the response.

    2. Retrieves the execution flags for the current context by using the GetExecuteFlags method.

    3. Tests for individual execution flags and returns the status to the Web client.

  4. The module removes the CHttpModule class from memory 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.
