Specifies that the URI is accessed through the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). This field is read-only.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)


Public Shared ReadOnly UriSchemeHttp As String
public static readonly string UriSchemeHttp


The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether the scheme is UriSchemeHttp.

Dim address3 As Uri = New Uri("https://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search")
If Uri.CheckSchemeName(address1.Scheme) Then 
  outputBlock.Text &= "address has a valid scheme name"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
  outputBlock.Text &= "address does not have a valid scheme name"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
End If

If address3.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeHttp Then
  outputBlock.Text &= "Uri is HTTP type"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
End If
Uri address3 = new Uri("https://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search");
if (Uri.CheckSchemeName(address1.Scheme))
    outputBlock.Text += "address has a valid scheme name\n";
    outputBlock.Text += "address does not has a valid scheme name\n";

if (address3.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeHttp)
    outputBlock.Text += "Uri is HTTP type\n";
Uri address1 = new Uri("https://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search");
Console.WriteLine("address 1 {0} a valid scheme name",
      Uri.CheckSchemeName(address1.Scheme) ? " has" : " does not have");

if (address1.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeHttp)
    Console.WriteLine("Uri is HTTP type");
