    Hello everyone,

    I implemented Signal R to my project.


    using Microsoft.Owin;
    using Owin;
    [assembly: OwinStartup(typeof(SignalR.Startup))]
    namespace SignalR
        public class Startup
            public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app)
                // Any connection or hub wire up and configuration should go here


    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using Microsoft.AspNet.SignalR;
    using SignalR.Models;
    namespace SignalR
        public class ChatHub : Hub
            static List<ChatUserDetail> ConnectedUsers = new List<ChatUserDetail>();
            static List<ChatMessageDetail> CurrentMessage = new List<ChatMessageDetail>();
            public void Connect(string UserName, int UserID)
                var id = Context.ConnectionId;
                if (ConnectedUsers.Count(x => x.ConnectionId == id) == 0)
                    ConnectedUsers.Add(new ChatUserDetail { ConnectionId = id, UserName = UserName + "-" + UserID, UserID = UserID });
                ChatUserDetail CurrentUser = ConnectedUsers.Where(u => u.ConnectionId == id).FirstOrDefault();
                Clients.Caller.onConnected(CurrentUser.UserID.ToString(), CurrentUser.UserName, ConnectedUsers, CurrentMessage, CurrentUser.UserID);
                Clients.AllExcept(CurrentUser.ConnectionId).onNewUserConnected(CurrentUser.UserID.ToString(), CurrentUser.UserName, CurrentUser.UserID);



     public ActionResult Chatting()
                ChatHub chatHub = new ChatHub();
                chatHub.Connect("chatUser", 1);
                return View();

    I got error  this line 

    var id = Context.ConnectionId;

    Hi TokenHash,

    According to your description and codes, I found you direclty call the method in your controller.

    This means your server directly broadcast the message to all the client user.

    If you use this way, there are no connectionid genreated.

    If you still want to get the connectionid  when using server  broadcast the message  way.

    I suggest you could try to install the Microsoft.AspNet.SignalR.Client pakcage and use this package to invoke the hub's method.

    Then it will generate the connectionid.

    More details, you could refer to below article:


    Best Regards,
