Response Property

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 Value

Type: System.Web.HttpResponse

The HttpResponse for the current HTTP response.

Exception Condition

The Web application is running under IIS 7 in Integrated mode.

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 using the fully qualified class reference to HttpContext. For example, you can use 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 a fully qualified reference to the currently active request/response context and the class in System.Web that you want to use. For example, in a code-behind page you must specify the fully qualified name HttpContext.Current.Response.Write("some output").
