SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I use a provider hosted Apps, so need to work with an App Web and Lists.

Could anybody provide a code snippet to get ClientContext() of the App?

Can I do something like this?

Uri appWeb = new Uri(HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString["SPAppWebUrl"]);
using (var clientContext = TokenHelper.GetS2SClientContextWithWindowsIdentity(appWeb, HttpContext.Current.Request.LogonUserIdentity))
