Route.DataTokens Property

Gets or sets custom values that are passed to the route handler, but which are not used to determine whether the route matches a URL pattern.

Namespace:  System.Web.Routing
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public RouteValueDictionary DataTokens { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.Routing.RouteValueDictionary
An object that contains custom values.

You use the DataTokens property to retrieve or assign values associated with the route that are not used to determine whether a route matches a URL pattern. These values are passed to the route handler, where they can be used for processing the request.

The following example shows how to create a Route object and set the Constraints, DataTokens, and Defaults properties.


void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) 
{
    RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
}

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
{
    Route reportRoute = new Route("{locale}/{year}", new ReportRouteHandler());
    reportRoute.Defaults = new RouteValueDictionary { { "locale", "en-US" }, { "year", DateTime.Now.Year.ToString() } };
    reportRoute.Constraints = new RouteValueDictionary { { "locale", "[a-z]{2}-[a-z]{2}" }, { "year", @"\d{4}" } };
    reportRoute.DataTokens = new RouteValueDictionary { { "format", "short" } };
    routes.Add(reportRoute);
}
