Uri.IsLoopback Property

Definition

Gets whether the specified Uri references the local host.

public:
 property bool IsLoopback { bool get(); };
public bool IsLoopback { get; }
member this.IsLoopback : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsLoopback As Boolean

Property Value

A Boolean value that is true if this Uri references the local host; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

This instance represents a relative URI, and this property is valid only for absolute URIs.

Examples

The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether it references a local host.

Uri^ uriAddress2 = gcnew Uri( "file://server/filename.ext" );
Console::WriteLine( uriAddress2->LocalPath );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a UNC path", uriAddress2->IsUnc ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a local host", uriAddress2->IsLoopback ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a file", uriAddress2->IsFile ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
// The example displays the following output:
//    \\server\filename.ext
//    Uri is a UNC path
//    Uri is not a local host
//    Uri is a file
Uri uriAddress2 =  new Uri("file://server/filename.ext");
Console.WriteLine(uriAddress2.LocalPath);
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a UNC path", uriAddress2.IsUnc ? "is" : "is not");
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a local host", uriAddress2.IsLoopback ? "is" : "is not");
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a file", uriAddress2.IsFile ? "is" : "is not");
// The example displays the following output:
//    \\server\filename.ext
//    Uri is a UNC path
//    Uri is not a local host
//    Uri is a file
Dim uriAddress2 As New Uri("file://server/filename.ext")
Console.WriteLine(uriAddress2.LocalPath)
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a UNC path", IIf(uriAddress2.IsUnc, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a local host", IIf(uriAddress2.IsLoopback, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a file", IIf(uriAddress2.IsFile, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
' The example displays the following output:
'    \\server\filename.ext
'    Uri is a UNC path
'    Uri is not a local host
'    Uri is a file

Remarks

IsLoopback returns true if the URI specified when this instance was created was 127.0.0.1, loopback, or localhost, or if the URI did not specify host information (for example, file:///c:Dir/file.txt). All other URIs return false.
