Gets the Server object, which is an instance of the HttpServerUtility class.

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

public HttpServerUtility Server { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.HttpServerUtility

The current Server object associated with the page.

This property provides access to the frequently used HtmlEncode and MapPath methods, among others.

The following code example demonstrates how to access error information from the server by using the Server object. In particular, the example gets the requested URL from the Request object, the most recent error from the Server object (using the GetLastError method) and converts them both to strings that can be displayed by the client. Once the message variable is written to the client, the error is deleted using the ClearError method.

protected void Page_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
  StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
  sb.Append("URL that caused the error: <br/>");
  sb.Append("Error message: <br/>");
