Namespace:  System

public bool IsEquivalentTo(
	UriTemplate other


Type: System.UriTemplate
The UriTemplate to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the UriTemplate is structurally equivalent to another; otherwise false.

Two UriTemplate instances are equivalent if their literal strings are identical and the variables appear in the same segments. For example "weather/{state}/{city}" is equivalent to "weather/{country}/{village}".

The following example shows how to call the IsEquivalentTo(UriTemplate).

UriTemplate template = new UriTemplate("weather/{state}/{city}?forecast={day}");
UriTemplate template2 = new UriTemplate("weather/{country}/{village}?forecast={type}");

bool equiv = template.IsEquivalentTo(template2);
