Page.AspCompatMode Property


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Sets a value indicating whether the page can be executed on a single-threaded apartment (STA) thread.

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

protected bool AspCompatMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the page supports Active Server Pages (ASP) code; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When set to true, this property allows the page to be executed on a single-threaded apartment (STA) thread. This allows the page to call STA components, such as components developed with Visual Basic 6.0. Setting this property to true also allows the page to call COM+ components that require access to the unmanaged ASP built-in objects. These are accessible through the ASP ObjectContext object or the OnStartPage method.

In most circumstances, do not set this property in code. Set the aspcompat attribute to true using the directive in the .aspx file. When the page is requested, the dynamically generated class sets the property.
