public function get Address () : Uri 
public function set Address (value : Uri)

Property Value

Type: System.Uri
A Uri instance that contains the address of the proxy server.

The Address property contains the address of the proxy server. When automatic proxy detection is not enabled, and no automatic configuration script is specified, the Address property and BypassList determine the proxy used for a request.

When the Address property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), requests bypass the proxy and connect directly to the destination host.

The following code example displays the properties of a WebProxy object, including its Address.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
// The following method displays the properties of the 
// specified WebProxy instance.

void DisplayProxyProperties(WebProxy* proxy)
    Console::WriteLine(S"Address: {0}", proxy->Address);
    Console::WriteLine(S"Bypass on local: {0}", __box(proxy->BypassProxyOnLocal));

    int count = proxy->BypassList->Length;
    if (count == 0)
        Console::WriteLine(S"The bypass list is empty.");
    String* bypass[] = proxy->BypassList;
    Console::WriteLine(S"The bypass list contents:");

    for (int i=0; i< count; i++)
