Uri.PathAndQuery Property

Gets the AbsolutePath and Query properties separated by a question mark (?).

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

public string PathAndQuery { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains the AbsolutePath and Query properties separated by a question mark (?).


This instance represents a relative URI, and this property is valid only for absolute URIs.

The PathAndQuery property contains the absolute path on the server and the query information sent with the request. It is identical to concatenating the AbsolutePath and Query properties.

The PathAndQuery property is escaped according to RFC 2396 by default. If International Resource Identifiers (IRIs) or Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) parsing is enabled, the PathAndQuery property is escaped according to RFC 3986 and RFC 3987.

For more information on IRI support, see the Remarks section for the Uri class.

The following example writes the URI path (/catalog/shownew.htm) and query (date= today) information to the console.

Uri baseUri = new Uri("");
 Uri myUri = new Uri(baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm?date=today");

Uri* baseUri = new Uri(S"");
Uri* myUri = new Uri(baseUri,S"catalog/shownew.htm?date=today");
