HttpWebRequest.Address Property

Gets the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the Internet resource that actually responds to the request.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public Uri Address { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Uri
A Uri that identifies the Internet resource that actually responds to the request. The default is the URI used by the WebRequest.Create method to initialize the request.

The Address property is set to the URI after any redirections that happen during the request are complete.

The URI of the original request is kept in the RequestUri property.

The following code example checks to see if the HttpWebRequest object req was redirected to another location to fulfill the request, and sets the value of the hasChanged variable to true if the request was redirected; otherwise hasChanged is set to false.

bool hasChanged = (req.RequestUri != req.Address);
