IWebProxy.GetProxy(Uri) Method


Returns the URI of a proxy.

 Uri ^ GetProxy(Uri ^ destination);
public Uri GetProxy (Uri destination);
public Uri? GetProxy (Uri destination);
abstract member GetProxy : Uri -> Uri
Public Function GetProxy (destination As Uri) As Uri



A Uri that specifies the requested Internet resource.



A Uri instance that contains the URI of the proxy used to contact destination; otherwise null or destination itself.


The following example uses the GetProxy method to return the URI that the HttpClient uses to access the Internet resource.

WebProxy_Interface^ webProxy_Interface = gcnew WebProxy_Interface( gcnew Uri( "http://proxy.example.com" ) );

webProxy_Interface->Credentials = gcnew NetworkCredential( "myusername", "mypassword" );

Console::WriteLine( "The web proxy is : {0}", webProxy_Interface->GetProxy( gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com" ) ) );

// Check if the webproxy can ne bypassed for the site "http://www.contoso.com".
if ( webProxy_Interface->IsBypassed( gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com" ) ) )
   Console::WriteLine( "Web Proxy is by passed" );
   Console::WriteLine( "Web Proxy is not by passed" );
WebProxy_Interface webProxy_Interface = new WebProxy_Interface(new Uri("http://proxy.example.com"));

webProxy_Interface.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("myusername", "mypassword");

Uri testUri = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com");

// Determine whether the Web proxy can be bypassed for the site "http://www.contoso.com".
    Console.WriteLine("Web Proxy is by passed");
    Uri? webProxyServer = webProxy_Interface.GetProxy(testUri);
    // In general, we wouldn't expect the condition (`webProxyServer! == testUri`) true here, if  IsBypassed returns `false`.
    // However, technically our interface can allow that.
    if (webProxyServer is null || webProxyServer! == testUri)
        Console.WriteLine("Web proxy is bypassed");
        Console.WriteLine("Web proxy is not bypassed");
        Console.WriteLine($"The web proxy is: {webProxyServer!}");

 Public Shared Sub Main()
     Dim webProxy_Interface As New WebProxy_Interface(New Uri("http://proxy.example.com"))
     webProxy_Interface.Credentials = New NetworkCredential("myusername", "mypassword")
     Console.WriteLine("The web proxy is : {0}", webProxy_Interface.GetProxy(New Uri("http://www.contoso.com")))
     'Determine whether the Web proxy can be bypassed for the site "http://www.contoso.com".
 console.writeline("For the Uri http://www.contoso.com , the ")
     If webProxy_Interface.IsBypassed(New Uri("http://www.contoso.com")) Then
         Console.WriteLine("webproxy is by passed")
         Console.WriteLine("webproxy is not bypassed")
     End If 
 End Sub


The GetProxy method returns the URI of the proxy server that handles requests to the Internet resource that is specified in the destination parameter. If the GetProxy method returns null or destination itself, the proxy is not used to contact the host and the request is passed directly to the server.
