HttpRequest.PhysicalPath Property

Gets the physical file system path corresponding to the requested URL.

Namespace:  System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public string PhysicalPath { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The file system path of the current request.

In redirect scenarios using Execute and Transfer, the PhysicalPath property returns the path to the original page. To find the physical path of the currently executing page use the MapPath method with the input argument set as the CurrentExecutionFilePath property.

The following code example uses the HtmlEncode method to HTML-encode the value of the PhysicalPath property and the WriteLine method to write the encoded value to the file. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the HttpRequest class.


// Write request information to the file with HTML encoding.
sw.WriteLine(Server.HtmlEncode(Request.PhysicalApplicationPath));
sw.WriteLine(Server.HtmlEncode(Request.PhysicalPath));
sw.WriteLine(Server.HtmlEncode(Request.RawUrl));
