This constructor creates a Uri instance by combining the baseUri and the relativeUri. If relativeUri is an absolute URI (containing a scheme, host name, and optionally a port number), the Uri instance is created using only relativeUri.

The string can be poorly formed and can still be used to construct a Uri instance. The Silverlight runtime will try to correct some minor issues with a poorly-formed string when this constructor is called to create a Uri instance.

This constructor allows a Silverlight application to create a Uri instance for many schemes as described in the Scheme property. However, only Uri instances for the UriSchemeHttp or UriSchemeHttps schemes are supported by the WebClient and HTTP classes in the System.Net namespace.

This constructor does not ensure that the Uri refers to an accessible resource.

Silverlight-based applications are cross-platform, so they run in most modern Web browsers, including Apple Safari version 2.0 and later on Apple Mac OS X. However, Uri(Uri, String) does not convert backslashes in the relativeUri parameter to forward slashes in the Uri on Apple Mac OS X.

The following example creates a new instance of the Uri class by combining the relative URIs http://www.contoso.com and catalog/showew.htm to form the absolute URI http://www.contoso.com/catalog/shownew.htm.


      Uri baseUri = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com");
      Uri myUri = new Uri(baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm");

      outputBlock.Text += "Uri: ";
      outputBlock.Text += myUri.ToString();
      outputBlock.Text += "\n";
