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

Public Class VirtualPathData
Dim instance As VirtualPathData

When you generate a URL by using the ASP.NET routing framework, an instance of the VirtualPathData class is returned by the GetVirtualPath method. The VirtualPathData class contains information about the route that matched the values that you provided when you called the GetVirtualPath method. The VirtualPathData object also contains the generated URL in the VirtualPath property. The DataTokens property contains custom values for the route. You retrieve the route object that is used for generating the URL by using the Route property.

The following example shows a control that creates a URL that is based on a route that has parameters that are named action and categoryName.

Dim vpd As VirtualPathData
Dim parameters As RouteValueDictionary

parameters = New RouteValueDictionary(New With {.action = "show", .categoryName = "bikes"})
vpd = RouteTable.Routes.GetVirtualPath(Nothing, parameters)
HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = vpd.VirtualPath
