Property Value

The default URL to which the application is redirected when an error occurs.



The DefaultRedirect property is null. This is the default.


The following code example shows how to use the DefaultRedirect property.

Refer to the code example in the CustomErrorsSection class topic to learn how to get the section.

// Get the currentDefaultRedirect
string currentDefaultRedirect = 
' Get the currentDefaultRedirect
  Dim currentDefaultRedirect As String = _


If the DefaultRedirect is not specified, a standard error is displayed instead. The DefaultRedirect specifies the generic error page to activate in case no error custom page exists.


The URL might be an absolute or a relative value. A relative URL is relative to the Web.config file that specified the DefaultRedirect, not to the Web page in which the error occurred. A relative URL starting with a tilde (~) is relative to the root path of the application.
