I am developing an ASP.NET Web Application and I have a .vb file that I working with. Within this .vb file I would like to be able to say:

Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")

However, it seems that I am unable to access the "Request" object. Is there a way around this in a .vb file?

Easiest way is as follows:-

in your .vb file you have a procedure...

Public Sub ProcName(ByVal CallingPage as Page)
   Dim servername as string

   servername = CallingPage.Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
End Sub

Hope this helps,

Hi dtrick

all you should need to do is use the httpcontext class as follows:

context.Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
context.Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")

How would you call this funtion? More specifically what does the parameter list look like?

Is there a class library that I need to import? I tried to import "System.Web.HttpContext", but it didn't work.

Thanks,

dtrick,

I was using a class in my VB file which inherited from System.Web.UI.Page, making the context class directly available to me.  

If this isnt applicable to you, you can just dim a new httpcontext object, so your code would look like:

Dim context As HttpContext
context.Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
context.Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")
