Examples

The following example creates a Uri instance and writes the path to the console.

// Create Uri
Uri^ uriAddress = gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search" );
Console::WriteLine( uriAddress->Fragment );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} the default port ", uriAddress->IsDefaultPort ? (String^)"uses" : "does not use" );

Console::WriteLine( "The path of this Uri is {0}", uriAddress->GetLeftPart( UriPartial::Path ) );
Console::WriteLine( "Hash code {0}", uriAddress->GetHashCode() );
// The example displays the following output:
//        #search
//        Uri uses the default port
//        The path of this Uri is http://www.contoso.com/index.htm
//        Hash code -988419291
// Create Uri
Uri uriAddress = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search");
Console.WriteLine(uriAddress.Fragment);
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} the default port ", uriAddress.IsDefaultPort ? "uses" : "does not use");
 
Console.WriteLine("The path of this Uri is {0}", uriAddress.GetLeftPart(UriPartial.Path));
Console.WriteLine("Hash code {0}", uriAddress.GetHashCode());
// The example displays the following output:
//        #search
//        Uri uses the default port
//        The path of this Uri is http://www.contoso.com/index.htm
//        Hash code -988419291
' Create Uri
Dim uriAddress As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search")
Console.WriteLine(uriAddress.Fragment)
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} the default port ", If(uriAddress.IsDefaultPort, "uses", "does not use")) 

Console.WriteLine("The path of this Uri is {0}", uriAddress.GetLeftPart(UriPartial.Path))
Console.WriteLine("Hash code {0}", uriAddress.GetHashCode())
' The example displays the following output:
'        #search
'        Uri uses the default port
'        The path of this Uri is http://www.contoso.com/index.htm
'        Hash code -988419291

Remarks

The GetLeftPart method returns a string containing the leftmost portion of the URI string, ending with the portion specified by part.

GetLeftPart includes delimiters in the following cases:

  • Scheme includes the scheme delimiter.

  • Authority does not include the path delimiter.

  • Path includes any delimiters in the original URI up to the query or fragment delimiter.

  • Query includes the Path, plus the query and its delimiter.

The following examples show a URI and the results of calling GetLeftPart with Scheme, Authority, Path, or Query.
