HttpWebRequest.RequestUri Property


Gets the original Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the request.

 virtual property Uri ^ RequestUri { Uri ^ get(); };
public override Uri RequestUri { get; }
member this.RequestUri : Uri
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property RequestUri As Uri

Property Value


A Uri that contains the URI of the Internet resource passed to the Create(String) method.


The following code example checks to see if the HttpWebRequest object req was redirected to another location to fulfill the request, and sets the value of the hasChanged variable to true if the request was redirected; otherwise, hasChanged is set to false.

bool hasChanged = req->RequestUri->Equals( req->Address );
bool hasChanged = (req.RequestUri != req.Address);
Dim hasChanged As Boolean = _
   (req.RequestUri.ToString() <> req.Address.ToString())


The Uri object passed to HttpWebRequest by the call to WebRequest.Create.

Following a redirection header does not change the RequestUri property. To get the actual URI that responded to the request, examine the Address property.
