HttpContext Class

Encapsulates all HTTP-specific information about an individual HTTP request.

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

public final class HttpContext implements IServiceProvider

Classes that inherit the IHttpModule and IHttpHandler interfaces are provided a reference to an HttpContext object for the current HTTP request. The object provides access to the intrinsic Request, Response, and Server properties for the request.

The following example demonstrates how to access and display properties of the HttpContext object. The context of the current HTTP request is accessed by using the Context property of the Page object.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
