IsLoopback Property

Uri.IsLoopback Property

Gets a Boolean value indicating whether the specified Uri references the local host.

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

public bool IsLoopback { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsLoopback ()

public function get IsLoopback () : boolean

Property Value

true if this Uri references the local host; otherwise, false.

Exception typeCondition

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