Property Value

Type: System.String
A String containing the absolute path to the resource.

ExceptionCondition

This instance represents a relative URI, and this property is valid only for absolute URIs.

The AbsolutePath property contains the path information that the server uses to resolve requests for information. Typically this is the path to the desired information on the server's file system, although it also can indicate the application or script the server must run to provide the information.

The path information does not include the scheme, host name, or query portion of the URI.

The following example writes the path /catalog/shownew.htm to the console.

Uri baseUri = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/");
 Uri myUri = new Uri(baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm?date=today");

 Console.WriteLine(myUri.AbsolutePath);
	Uri* baseUri = new Uri(S"http://www.contoso.com/");
	Uri* myUri = new Uri(baseUri, S"catalog/shownew.htm?date=today");

	Console::WriteLine(myUri->AbsolutePath);
