CompilationSection.Batch Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether batch compilation is attempted.

Namespace:   System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("batch", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool Batch { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if batch compilation is attempted; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Set this attribute to true to change the delay caused by the required compilation when you access an uncompiled file. Setting this attribute to true instructs ASP.NET to precompile all the uncompiled files in batch mode. A delay occurs when the files are first compiled; however once the files are compiled, the delay is eliminated.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Batch property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the CompilationSection class.

// Display Batch property.
Console.WriteLine("Batch: {0}", configSection.Batch);

// Set Batch property.
configSection.Batch = true;
