HttpContext.Response Property

Gets the HttpResponse object for the current HTTP response.

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

public HttpResponse Response { get; }
/** @property */
public HttpResponse get_Response ()

public function get Response () : HttpResponse

Property Value

The HttpResponse for the current response.

The Response property provides programmatic access to the properties and methods of the HttpResponse class. Because ASP.NET pages contain a default reference to the System.Web namespace (which contains the HttpContext class), you can reference the members of HttpContext on an .aspx page without the fully qualified class reference to HttpContext. For example, you can use just Response.Write("some output") to write output to an HTTP output stream. However, if you want to use the members of HttpResponse from an ASP.NET code-behind module, you must include a reference to the System.Web namespace in the module and also fully qualify the reference to the currently active request/response context and the class in System.Web you want to use. For example, in a code-behind page you must specify the full name HttpContext.Current.Response.Write("some output").
