Property Value


The HttpServerUtility object associated with the Page that contains the UserControl instance.



The following example uses the Server property to write the name of the Web server computer on which the user control is running. The myControl.Response.Write syntax instructs the user control to display the information the control obtains with the myControl.Server.Machinename syntax.

          myControl.Response.Write("<br /><b>The server code is running on machine</b> : " + myControl.Server.MachineName);
          string actualServerPath = myControl.MapPath(myControl.Request.Path);

myControl.Response.Write("<br /><b>The server code is running on machine</b> : " + myControl.Server.MachineName)
Dim actualServerPath As String = myControl.MapPath(myControl.Request.Path)


The Server object is compatible with ASP pages.
