RouteCollection.MapPageRoute Method (String, String, String, Boolean, RouteValueDictionary, RouteValueDictionary)

Provides a way to define routes for Web Forms applications.

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

public Route MapPageRoute(
	string routeName,
	string routeUrl,
	string physicalFile,
	bool checkPhysicalUrlAccess,
	RouteValueDictionary defaults,
	RouteValueDictionary constraints


Type: System.String
The name of the route.
Type: System.String
The URL pattern for the route.
Type: System.String
The physical URL for the route.
Type: System.Boolean
A value that indicates whether ASP.NET should validate that the user has authority to access the physical URL (the route URL is always checked). This parameter sets the PageRouteHandler.CheckPhysicalUrlAccess property.
Type: System.Web.Routing.RouteValueDictionary
Default values for the route.
Type: System.Web.Routing.RouteValueDictionary
Constraints that a URL request must meet in order to be processed as this route.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Routing.Route
The route that is added to the route collection.

This method is provided for coding convenience. It is equivalent to calling the Add method and passing a Route object that is created by using the PageRouteHandler class.

The following example shows how to define a route by using this method. This example is part of a larger example that is available in the MapPageRoute method overview.

    "ExpenseReportCurrent/{locale}", "~/expenses.aspx",
    new RouteValueDictionary 
        { { "locale", "US" }, { "year", DateTime.Now.Year.ToString() } },
    new RouteValueDictionary 
        { { "locale", "[a-z]{2}" }, { "year", @"\d{4}" } });
