URI Query String Parameters Sample

This sample demonstrates how to retrieve the query string parameters from a uniform resource identifier (URI) for an application such as an application that is launched from a Web server using ClickOnce.

Important noteImportant Note:

This sample must be deployed to and launched from a Web server to work.

This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices.

  • Download the sample, usually from the software development kit (SDK) documentation, to your hard disk drive.

  • To build the sample from the build environment command window, go to the source directory of the sample. At the command prompt, type MSBUILD.

  • To build the sample in Microsoft Visual Studio, load the sample solution or project file and then press CTRL+SHIFT+B.

  • To run the compiled sample from the build environment command window, execute the .exe file in the Bin\Debug or Bin\Release folder contained under the sample source code folder.

  • To run the compiled sample with debugging in Visual Studio, press F5.

This sample demonstrates how to retrieve the query string parameters from a uniform resource identifier (URI) for an application such as an application that is launched from a Web server using ClickOnce.

To get the query string parameters, the code uses the ApplicationDeployment class to determine if the application has been launched using ClickOnce and, if so, to retrieve the query string parameters and insert them into a hash table for storage.
