The Unlock method enables other clients to modify the variables stored in the Application object after it has been locked using the Application.Lock method. If you do not call this method explicitly, the Web server unlocks the Application Object when the .asp file ends or times out.






Application("NumVisits") =index.html Application("NumVisits") + 1

Application("datLastVisited") = Now() 




This application page has been visited 

<%= Application("NumVisits") %>  times!

In the preceding example, the Unlock method releases the locked object so that the next client can increment NumVisits.

note Note  The application Lock method is cumulative, meaning that if the same script calls Lock several times, it must also call Unlock the same number of times to fully release the application. If this does not occur, the application lock will be held until the script is finished running.

Applies To

Application Object
