HttpCapabilitiesBase.RequiresUniqueFilePathSuffix Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the browser requires unique form-action URLs.

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

public virtual bool RequiresUniqueFilePathSuffix { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the browser requires unique form-action URLs; otherwise, false. The default is false.

A self-referring HTML <form> element is one for which the action attribute specifies its own URL. If true, self-referring forms do not return the correct results. This is due to caching by either the browser or an intermediate gateway. To correct this, server control adapters append a default query string (__ufps=uniquefilepathsuffix) onto the form-action URL values of self-referring forms.

The following code example shows how to determine whether the browser requires unique form-action URLs.
