The following example creates 2 Uri instances. The difference in the path information is written to the console.

// Create a base Uri.
Uri^ address1 = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/" );

// Create a new Uri from a string.
Uri^ address2 = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/index.htm?date=today" );

// Determine the relative Uri.  
Console::WriteLine( "The difference is {0}", address1->MakeRelativeUri( address2 ) );
