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]);
