'Declaration <SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Flags := SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure)> _ Public Overrides Function ToString As String
The string returned by this method does not contain port information when the port is the default port for the scheme.
The following example creates a new Uri instance from a string. It illustrates the difference between the value returned from OriginalString, which returns the string that was passed to the constructor, and from a call to , which returns the canonical form of the string.
' Create a new Uri from a string address. Dim uriAddress As New Uri("HTTP://www.Contoso.com:80/thick%20and%20thin.htm") ' Write the new Uri to the console and note the difference in the two values. ' ToString() gives the canonical version. OriginalString gives the orginal ' string that was passed to the constructor. ' The following outputs "http://www.contoso.com/thick and thin.htm". Console.WriteLine(uriAddress.ToString()) ' The following outputs "HTTP://www.Contoso.com:80/thick%20and%20thin.htm". Console.WriteLine(uriAddress.OriginalString) End Sub 'SampleToString
