RouteBase Class

Serves as the base class for all classes that represent an ASP.NET route.


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

public abstract class RouteBase

The RouteBase type exposes the following members.

Protected methodRouteBaseInitializes the class for use by an inherited class instance. This constructor can only be called by an inherited class.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetRouteDataWhen overridden in a derived class, returns route information about the request.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetVirtualPathWhen overridden in a derived class, checks whether the route matches the specified values, and if so, generates a URL and retrieves information about the route.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The RouteBase class enables you to create customized classes for defining routes in your application. Typically, you will use the Route class when you define routes. The Route class derives from the RouteBase class. However, if you want to provide different functionality than what is provided by the Route class, you create a class that derives from RouteBase and implement the properties and methods that you need.
