Examples

The following code example implements the CodePage property of the IHttpSessionState interface to get and set the encoding for the current response.

//
// Session.CodePage exists only to support legacy ASP compatibility. ASP.NET developers should use
// Response.ContentEncoding instead.
//
public int CodePage
{
  get
  { 
    if (HttpContext.Current != null)
      return HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding.CodePage;
    else
      return Encoding.Default.CodePage;
  }
  set
  { 
    if (HttpContext.Current != null)
      HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding = Encoding.GetEncoding(value);
  }
}
'
    ' Session.CodePage exists only to support legacy ASP compatibility. ASP.NET developers should use
' Response.ContentEncoding instead.
'
Public Property CodePage As Integer Implements IHttpSessionState.CodePage    
  Get
    If Not HttpContext.Current Is Nothing Then
      Return HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding.CodePage
    Else
      Return Encoding.Default.CodePage
    End If
  End Get
  Set       
    If Not HttpContext.Current Is Nothing Then _
      HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding = Encoding.GetEncoding(value)
  End Set
End Property

Remarks

A character set (code page) is used to interpret multi-byte character data, determining character value, and therefore sort order. Code-page settings apply only to multi-byte character data, not to Unicode character data.

This CodePage property is provided for compatibility with earlier versions of ASP only. If you do not need to maintain backward compatibility with ASP pages, use the CodePage property of the ContentEncoding property instead.
