Is it possible to retrieve the useragent in a class?

I have tried:
Dim userAgent As String = Request.UserAgent

Open in new window


And System.Web.HttpRequest etc. but it errors saying:
reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference

Can I not put this in an App_Code class?

thanks!

hi,
The error you are getting becuase you are trying to access a non shared method OR a method of a class without its instance.

You either have to make the method Shared or use an instance of the class by creating an instance of an object.

hope this helps.
