HttpRuntimeSection.RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the URL in an HTTP request is required to be a valid Windows file path.

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

[<ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("relaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping", DefaultValue = false)>]
member RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the URL does not have to comply with Windows path rules; otherwise false. The default is false.

The RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping property determines how the URL in an incoming HTTP request will be validated. If this property is false, the URL is validated by using the same rules that determine whether a Windows file system path is valid.

You can set this value in a configuration file by setting the RelaxedUrlToFileSystemMapping attribute of the httpRuntime element. For more information, see httpRuntime Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema).
