public abstract class RouteBase

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.
