HttpListenerRequest.QueryString Property

Gets the query string included in the request.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public NameValueCollection QueryString { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection
A NameValueCollection object that contains the query data included in the request Url.

In a URL, the query information is separated from the path information by a question mark (?). Name/value pairs are separated by an equals sign (=). To access the query data as a single string, get the Query property value from the Uri object returned by Url.

NoteNote

Queries without an equal sign (example: http://www.contoso.com/query.htm?Name ) are added to the null key in the NameValueCollection.

The following code example demonstrates using the QueryString property.

public static void ShowRequestProperties1 (HttpListenerRequest request)
{
    // Display the MIME types that can be used in the response. 
    string[] types = request.AcceptTypes;
    if (types != null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Acceptable MIME types:");
        foreach (string s in types)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(s);
        }
    }
    // Display the language preferences for the response.
    types = request.UserLanguages;
    if (types != null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Acceptable natural languages:");
        foreach (string l in types)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(l);
        }
    }

    // Display the URL used by the client.
    Console.WriteLine("URL: {0}", request.Url.OriginalString);
    Console.WriteLine("Raw URL: {0}", request.RawUrl);
    Console.WriteLine("Query: {0}", request.QueryString);

    // Display the referring URI.
    Console.WriteLine("Referred by: {0}", request.UrlReferrer);

    //Display the HTTP method.
    Console.WriteLine("HTTP Method: {0}", request.HttpMethod);
    //Display the host information specified by the client;
    Console.WriteLine("Host name: {0}", request.UserHostName);
    Console.WriteLine("Host address: {0}", request.UserHostAddress);
    Console.WriteLine("User agent: {0}", request.UserAgent);
}
