Gets the HttpApplicationState object for the current HTTP request.

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

public HttpApplicationState Application { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.HttpApplicationState

The HttpApplicationState for the current HTTP request.

To get the HttpApplication object for the current HTTP request, use ApplicationInstance. (ASP.NET uses ApplicationInstance instead of Application as a property name to refer to the current HttpApplication instance in order to avoid confusion between ASP.NET and classic ASP. In classic ASP, Application refers to the global application state dictionary.)
