Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the route segment that contains the value for the parameter.

When you define a route pattern, you can include segments that serve as placeholders for the actual values in the Web request URL. You define placeholders by enclosing them in braces ( { and } ). For example, a route pattern in the format blog/{action}/{entry} contains placeholders named action and entry. To retrieve the value of a placeholder, set the RouteKey property to the name of the placeholder and call the Evaluate method.
