GetProxy Method

WebProxy.GetProxy Method (Uri)


Returns the proxied URI for a request.

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

abstract GetProxy : 
        destination:Uri -> Uri
override GetProxy : 
        destination:Uri -> Uri


Type: System.Uri

The Uri instance of the requested Internet resource.

Return Value

Type: System.Uri

The Uri instance of the Internet resource, if the resource is on the bypass list; otherwise, the Uri instance of the proxy.

Exception Condition

The destination parameter is null.

The GetProxy method returns the URI that the WebRequest instance uses to access the Internet resource.

GetProxy compares destination with the contents of BypassList, using the IsBypassed method. If IsBypassed returns true, GetProxy returns destination and the WebRequest instance does not use the proxy server.

If destination is not in BypassList, the WebRequest instance uses the proxy server and the Address property is returned.

The following code example creates a WebProxy object and calls this method to get the proxy that is selected for a resource.
