HttpContext.CurrentNotification HttpContext.CurrentNotification HttpContext.CurrentNotification HttpContext.CurrentNotification Property

Definition

Gets a RequestNotification value that indicates the current HttpApplication event that is processing.

public:
 property System::Web::RequestNotification CurrentNotification { System::Web::RequestNotification get(); };
public System.Web.RequestNotification CurrentNotification { get; }
member this.CurrentNotification : System.Web.RequestNotification
Public ReadOnly Property CurrentNotification As RequestNotification

Property Value

Exceptions

The operation requires integrated pipeline mode in IIS 7.0 and at least the .NET Framework version 3.0.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the CurrentNotification property to determine what event of the HttpApplication object that is handling the current request is being processed. In the example, the event handler handles several events of the HttpApplication object, and the CurrentNotification property determines what code is invoked for each event being handled.

            app.PostLogRequest += new EventHandler(App_Handler);
        }

Remarks

The CurrentNotification property requires the integrated pipeline mode in IIS 7.0 and at least the .NET Framework version 3.0. When available, the property returns a RequestNotification value. The value of the CurrentNotification property indicates which event in the HttpApplication instance is currently processing the request.

The CurrentNotification property is not intended to be set. Instead, it is set by IIS 7.0 during the processing of the request in the ASP.NET pipeline. Setting the CurrentNotification property will result in a compilation error.

CurrentNotification is introduced in the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see Versions and Dependencies.
