Uri::IsLoopback Property

Gets whether the specified Uri references the local host.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public:
property bool IsLoopback {
	bool get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
A Boolean value that is true if this Uri references the local host; otherwise, false.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

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

IsLoopback returns true if the URI specified when this instance was created was 127.0.0.1, loopback, or localhost, or if the URI did not specify host information (for example, file:///c:Dir/file.txt). All other URIs return false.

The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether it references a local host.

Uri^ uriAddress2 = gcnew Uri( "file://server/filename.ext" );
Console::WriteLine( uriAddress2->LocalPath );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a UNC path", uriAddress2->IsUnc ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a local host", uriAddress2->IsLoopback ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a file", uriAddress2->IsFile ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
