 property bool RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[System.Configuration.ConfigurationProperty("relaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping", DefaultValue=false)]
public bool RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping { get; set; }

Public Property RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping As Boolean

Property Value

true if the URL does not have to comply with Windows path rules; otherwise false. The default is false.



The RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping property determines how the URL in an incoming HTTP request will be validated. If this property is false, the URL is validated by using the same rules that determine whether a Windows file system path is valid.

You can set this value in a configuration file by setting the RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping attribute of the httpRuntime element. For more information, see httpRuntime Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema).
