An unhandled exception has occurred. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to access the Sharepoint SPContext from a Handler which I have registered with IIS . When ever I'm trying to make a request for my handler It's giving me the below mentioned warning and it's not able to get the SPContext (SpContext = null)

    This is the code I'm using in my Handler --->

        public bool IsReusable
          get { return true; }
        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
    SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(() =>

    private string GetData() { string rootsite = String.Empty; try { rootsite = "http://" + SPContext.Current.Site.HostName + "/home"; } catch (Exception exe) { ILogger logger = new SharePointLogger(); logger.LogToOperations(string.Format("Exception -{0}--{1}",exe.Message,exe.StackTrace), EventLogEntryType.Information); } return string.Format("Hi"); }
    This is the error which is getting logged in my event Log --->

  • Hi,

    Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Your class must implement the following interfaces.

    public class YourHttpModule : IHttpModule, IRequiresSessionState

    Step 2: Add Reference Windows Sharepoint

    using System;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.SessionState;
    using Microsoft.SharePoint;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Collections.Generic;

    Step 3: Register the assembly in the GAC

    Step 4: Copy the file to the folder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\bin

    Step 5: Write the following lines of code to capture the SPContext

            public void Init(HttpApplication context)
                if (context == null)
                context.PreRequestHandlerExecute += new EventHandler(context_PreRequestHandlerExecute);

    Step 6: Capture o evento PreRequestHandlerExecute

            void context_PreRequestHandlerExecute(object sender, EventArgs e)
                HttpContext ctx = ((HttpApplication)sender).Context; //Capture the Request/Response of your page
                SPWeb webSite = SPContext.Current.Web;
                SPSite site = SPContext.Current.Site;

                <YOUR CODE>

     Step 7: Register tag in Web.Config (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\)

               <add name="moduleName" type="Namespace.ClassName, AssemblyName" />

     Step 8: IISReset

    With this you will capture the SPContext
