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)

'Declaration
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property ResponseUri As Uri
'Usage
Dim instance As WebResponse 
Dim value As Uri 

value = instance.ResponseUri

Property Value

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

ExceptionCondition
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.

Dim ourUri As New Uri(url)
' Create a 'WebRequest' object with the specified url.  

Dim myWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url)

' Send the 'WebRequest' and wait for response. 
Dim myWebResponse As WebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse()

' "ResponseUri" property is used to get the actual Uri from where the response was attained. 
If ourUri.Equals(myWebResponse.ResponseUri) Then
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Request Url : {0} was not redirected", url)
Else
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Request Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", url, myWebResponse.ResponseUri)
End If  

' 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->ResponseUri))
   Console::WriteLine(S"\nRequest Url : {0} was not redirected", url);
else
   Console::WriteLine(S"\nRequest Url : {0} was redirected to {1}", url, myWebResponse->ResponseUri);
// Release resources of response object.
myWebResponse->Close();
