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

public UriTemplateMatch Match(
	Uri baseAddress,
	Uri candidate


Type: System.Uri

The base address.

Type: System.Uri

Return Value

Type: System.UriTemplateMatch
An instance.

If the match is successful the UriTemplateMatch is populated with the URI segments, variable values, query string values, and wildcard segments from the candidate URI. If the match is unsuccessful, null is returned.

The following example shows how to call the Match(Uri, Uri) method.

UriTemplate template = new UriTemplate("weather/{state}/{city}?forecast={day}");
Uri prefix = new Uri("http://localhost");

Uri fullUri = new Uri("http://localhost/weather/Washington/Redmond?forecast=today");
UriTemplateMatch results = template.Match(prefix, fullUri);

Console.WriteLine("Matching {0} to {1}", template.ToString(), fullUri.ToString());

if (results != null)
    foreach (string variableName in results.BoundVariables.Keys)
        Console.WriteLine("   {0}: {1}", variableName, results.BoundVariables[variableName]);
