WebResponse.ResponseUri Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets the URI of the Internet resource that actually responded to the request.

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

public:
virtual property Uri^ ResponseUri {
	Uri^ get ();
}
/** @property */
public Uri get_ResponseUri ()

public function get ResponseUri () : Uri

Not applicable.

Property Value

An instance of the Uri class that contains the URI of the Internet resource that actually responded to the request.

Exception typeCondition

NotSupportedException

Any attempt is made to get or set the property, when the property is not overridden in a descendant class.

The ResponseUri property contains the URI of the Internet resource that actually provided the response data. This resource might not be the originally requested URI if the underlying protocol allows redirection of the request.

NoteNote:

The WebResponse class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebResponse instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by WebRequest.GetResponse. For more information about default values and exceptions, please see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebResponse and FileWebResponse.

The following example uses the ResponseUri property to determine the location from which the WebResponse originated.

Uri^ ourUri = gcnew Uri( url );

// Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url.
WebRequest^ myWebRequest = WebRequest::Create( url );

// Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response.
WebResponse^ myWebResponse = myWebRequest->GetResponse();

// Use "ResponseUri" property to get the actual Uri from where the response was attained.
if ( ourUri->Equals( myWebResponse->ResponseUri ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRequest Url : {0} was not redirected", url );
}
else
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRequest Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", url, myWebResponse->ResponseUri );
}

// Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse->Close();

Uri ourUri = new Uri(url);
// Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url. 
WebRequest myWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url);
// Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response.
WebResponse myWebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse();
// Use "ResponseUri" property to get the actual Uri from where the 
// response was attained.
if (ourUri.Equals(myWebResponse.get_ResponseUri())) {
    Console.WriteLine("\nRequest Url : {0} was not redirected", url);
}
else {
    Console.WriteLine("\nRequest Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", 
        url, myWebResponse.get_ResponseUri());
} // Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse.Close();
