Application.Contents Collection

The Contents collection contains all the items that have been added to the application through a script command. You can use the Contents collection to obtain a list of items that have been given application scope or to specify a particular item to be the target of an operation. You can also remove items from the collection by using the Remove and RemoveAll methods.




Specifies the name of the item to retrieve.


Application.Contents.Remove Deletes an item from the collection.
Application.Contents.RemoveAll Deletes all items from the collection.


The Contents collection contains those items that have been declared at the application level without using the <OBJECT> tags. This would include both objects created by using Server.CreateObject, as well as scalar variables established through an Application declaration. In the following script, for example, both "strHello" and objCustom would be members of the Contents collection.


 Application("strHello") =index.html "Hello"

 Set Application("objCustom") = Server.CreateObject("MyComponent") %>

The Contents collection supports For...Each and For...Next iteration. The following script illustrates each of these methods of iterating through the Contents collection:


  Application("strText1") =index.html "1234567890"

  Application("strText2") = "ABCDEFGHIJ"

  Application("strText3") = "A1B2C3D4E5"



  For Each Key in Application.Contents

    Response.Write Key + " = " + Application(Key) + "<BR>"




  For intItem = 1 to Application.Contents.Count

    Response.Write CStr(intItem) + " = "  

    Response.Write Application.Contents(intItem) + "<BR>"



You can see a working sample .asp file that uses the Contents collection in the Building ASP Applications section of the Samples.
