SessionStateUtility.GetSessionStaticObjects(HttpContext) Method

Definition

Gets a reference to the static objects collection for the specified context.

public:
 static System::Web::HttpStaticObjectsCollection ^ GetSessionStaticObjects(System::Web::HttpContext ^ context);
public static System.Web.HttpStaticObjectsCollection GetSessionStaticObjects (System.Web.HttpContext context);
static member GetSessionStaticObjects : System.Web.HttpContext -> System.Web.HttpStaticObjectsCollection
Public Shared Function GetSessionStaticObjects (context As HttpContext) As HttpStaticObjectsCollection

Parameters

context
HttpContext

The HttpContext from which to get the static objects collection.

Returns

An HttpStaticObjectsCollection collection populated with the StaticObjects property value for the specified HttpContext.

Examples

The following code example shows the handler for the AcquireRequestState event in a custom session-state module. The module retrieves existing session information or creates new session information, including the HttpStaticObjectsCollection collection returned from the GetSessionStaticObjects method, and adds it to the HttpContext of the current request. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SessionStateUtility class.

Remarks

The GetSessionStaticObjects method is used to retrieve the collection of static objects defined in the Global.asax file for the ASP.NET application. A session-state module implementation will supply the returned HttpStaticObjectsCollection collection to the IHttpSessionState implementation instance that is added to the current context using the AddHttpSessionStateToContext method.

A SessionStateStoreProviderBase can also use the GetSessionStaticObjects method when creating a SessionStateStoreData object.
