IHttpAsyncHandler Interface

Defines the contract that HTTP asynchronous handler objects must implement.

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

public interface IHttpAsyncHandler : IHttpHandler

The IHttpAsyncHandler type exposes the following members.

Public propertyIsReusableGets a value indicating whether another request can use the IHttpHandler instance. (Inherited from IHttpHandler.)

Public methodBeginProcessRequestInitiates an asynchronous call to the HTTP handler.
Public methodEndProcessRequestProvides an asynchronous process End method when the process ends.
Public methodProcessRequestEnables processing of HTTP Web requests by a custom HttpHandler that implements the IHttpHandler interface. (Inherited from IHttpHandler.)

An IHttpAsyncHandler class can be associated with a file name extension or a particular URL by a configuration file, in the httpHandlers configuration section. The ASP.NET infrastructure will then instantiate and call the handler when the corresponding request is received. Alternatively, the handler can be defined in an .ashx file and when the corresponding request is received for the .ashx file the hander will be executed.
