Examples

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

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" );
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");
    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

End Sub 'GetParts

Remarks

The value returned by this property is unescaped. If the path is recognized as a Windows file path, all forward slashes (/) are replaced by backward slashes (\).

For the URI file://computer/file.ext, the absolute path is /file.ext and the local path is \\computer\file.ext.
