public static System.Web.HttpContext Current { get; set; }

Public Shared Property Current As HttpContext
Property Value

The HttpContext instance for the current HTTP request.

Examples

The following code example uses the Current property to access the HttpContext.AddError and HttpContext.ClearError methods and the HttpContext.AllErrors property. The example creates three custom exceptions using the AddError method and uses the AllErrors property to load these exceptions to an array. It then writes the array to the containing page and uses the ClearError method to clear all the errors from the Context property.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
{  
    HttpContext context = HttpContext.Current;  
    Response.Write("<p>HttpContext.Current Example:</p>");  

    // Add three custom exceptions.  
    context.AddError(new Exception("New Exception #1"));  
    context.AddError(new Exception("New Exception #2"));  
    context.AddError(new Exception("New Exception #3"));  

    // Capture all the new Exceptions in an array.  
    Exception[] errs = context.AllErrors;  

    foreach (Exception ex in errs)  
    {  
        Response.Write("<p>" + Server.HtmlEncode(ex.ToString()) + "</p>");  
    }  

    // Clear the exceptions so ASP.NET won't handle them.  
    context.ClearError();  
}  
Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)  
Dim context As HttpContext = HttpContext.Current  
Response.Write("<p>HttpContext.Current Example:</p>")  

' Add three custom exceptions.  
context.AddError(New Exception("New Exception #1"))  
context.AddError(New Exception("New Exception #2"))  
context.AddError(New Exception("New Exception #3"))  

' Capture all the new Exceptions in an array.  
Dim errs As Exception() = context.AllErrors  

For Each ex As Exception In errs  
Response.Write("<p>" & Server.HtmlEncode(ex.ToString()) & "</p>")  
Next  

' Clear the exceptions so ASP.NET won't handle them.  
context.ClearError()  
End Sub  

Remarks

This property is a static property of the HttpContext class. The property stores the HttpContext instance that applies to the current request. The properties of this instance are the non-static properties of the HttpContext class.

You can also use the Page.Context property to access the HttpContext object for the current HTTP request.
