HttpResponse.ApplyAppPathModifier Method

Adds a session ID to the virtual path if the session is using Cookieless session state and returns the combined path. If Cookieless session state is not used, ApplyAppPathModifier returns the original virtual path.

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

Public Function ApplyAppPathModifier ( _
	virtualPath As String _
) As String


Type: System.String
The virtual path to a resource.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The virtualPath with the session ID inserted.

ApplyAppPathModifier is used only with cookieless sessions to construct absolute HREFs.

The following example declares a string variable named urlConverted, and sets it to the result of an ApplyAppPathModifier method call. The code then passes the variable's value to a HyperLink control's NavigateUrl property.

' Declare a string variable and set it to the result
' of a call to the ApplyAppPathModifier method.
' Then set the NavigateUrl property of a Hyperlink control
' to the string's value.
Dim urlConverted As String = Response.ApplyAppPathModifier("TestPage.aspx")
hlTest1.NavigateUrl = urlConverted
