The ASP.NET HttpContext for the current request.

Exception Condition

Context is null.

XML Web service methods that have either the SoapRpcMethodAttribute or SoapDocumentMethodAttribute attribute applied to them with the OneWay property of set to true, do not have access to their HttpContext using the static Current property. To access the HttpContext, derive the class implementing the XML Web service method from WebService and access the Context property.

The Example below uses the Context property to obtain the time of the request on the server.
