CGlobalModule::OnGlobalPreBeginRequest Method

IIS 7.0

Represents the method that will handle a GlobalPreBeginRequest event, which occurs before a request enters the pipeline.

virtual GLOBAL_NOTIFICATION_STATUS OnGlobalPreBeginRequest(
   IN IPreBeginRequestProvider* pProvider
);

pProvider

[IN] A pointer to an IPreBeginRequestProvider interface.

When a global module has registered for the GL_PRE_BEGIN_REQUEST event notification, IIS will call the module's OnGlobalPreBeginRequest method before a request enters the request pipeline.

NoteNote:

Global modules can register for the GlobalPreBeginRequest event notification by registering for GL_PRE_BEGIN_REQUEST in the module's RegisterModule function.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a global-level HTTP module that registers for the GL_PRE_BEGIN_REQUEST notification. When a new request arrives, IIS will call the example module's OnGlobalPreBeginRequest method before the request enters the request pipeline. This method will write an entry in the application log of the Windows Event Viewer and then exit.

#define _WINSOCKAPI_
#include <windows.h>
#include <sal.h>
#include <httpserv.h>

// Create the module's global class.
class MyGlobalModule : public CGlobalModule
{
public:

    // Process a GL_PRE_BEGIN_REQUEST notification.
    GLOBAL_NOTIFICATION_STATUS
    OnGlobalPreBeginRequest(
        IN IPreBeginRequestProvider * pProvider
    )
    {
        UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER( pProvider );
        WriteEventViewerLog("OnGlobalPreBeginRequest");
        return GL_NOTIFICATION_CONTINUE;
    }

    VOID Terminate()
    {
        // Remove the class from memory.
        delete this;
    }

    MyGlobalModule()
    {
        // Open a handle to the Event Viewer.
        m_hEventLog = RegisterEventSource( NULL,"IISADMIN" );
    }

    ~MyGlobalModule()
    {
        // Test whether the handle for the Event Viewer is open.
        if (NULL != m_hEventLog)
        {
            // Close the handle to the Event Viewer.
            DeregisterEventSource( m_hEventLog );
            m_hEventLog = NULL;
        }
    }

private:

    // Create a handle for the event viewer.
    HANDLE m_hEventLog;

    // Define a method that writes to the Event Viewer.
    BOOL WriteEventViewerLog(LPCSTR szNotification)
    {
        // Test whether the handle for the Event Viewer is open.
        if (NULL != m_hEventLog)
        {
            // Write any strings to the Event Viewer and return.
            return ReportEvent(
                m_hEventLog,
                EVENTLOG_INFORMATION_TYPE, 0, 0,
                NULL, 1, 0, &szNotification, NULL );
        }
        return FALSE;
    }

    DWORD dwServerVersion,
    IHttpModuleRegistrationInfo * pModuleInfo,
    IHttpServer * pGlobalInfo

{
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER( dwServerVersion );
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER( pGlobalInfo );

    // Create an instance of the global module class.
    MyGlobalModule * pGlobalModule = new MyGlobalModule;
    // Test for an error.
    if (NULL == pGlobalModule)
    {
        return HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY);
    }
    // Set the global notifications and exit.
    return pModuleInfo->SetGlobalNotifications(
        pGlobalModule, GL_PRE_BEGIN_REQUEST );
}


Your module must export the RegisterModule function. You can export this function by creating a module definition (.def) file for your project, or you can compile the module by using the /EXPORT:RegisterModule switch. For more information, see Walkthrough: Creating a Global-Level HTTP Module By Using Native Code.

You can optionally compile the code by using the __stdcall (/Gz) calling convention instead of explicitly declaring the calling convention for each function.
