Solved

The type or namespace name 'Request' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Hi ,

I am working on ASP.net 1.1, C#

In the CS file I have handled the exception handling.

There I want to add the referrer page if any

I added but I get the error

The type or namespace name 'Request' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)


With below code



using System;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Web.Mail;

string ErrFullMessage = string.Empty;


if(Request.UrlReferrer != null)
{
      ErrFullMessage = ErrFullMessage+"<br> Url Referrer"+Request.UrlReferrer.ToString();
}


I also tried adding the assemblies but doesn't work


using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

Please guide

Thanks

Hello tia_kamakshi,

I assume that this is not a code-behind file.

In this case you need to use:

If(HttpContext.Current.Request.UrlReferrer !=null)

To explicitly reference the current request object. The request/server/response objects are normally available only to code-behind because they are partial classes and inherit the Page object which has these objects in it. If you need to refer to them from elsewhere use HttpContext.Current.Request etc.

Regards,
