public bool UserEscaped { get; }
member this.UserEscaped : bool
Public ReadOnly Property UserEscaped As Boolean

Property Value


true if the dontEscape parameter was set to true when the Uri instance was created; otherwise, false.


The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether it was fully escaped when it was created.

Uri^ uriAddress = gcnew Uri( "http://user:password@www.contoso.com/index.htm " );
Console::WriteLine( uriAddress->UserInfo );
Console::WriteLine( "Fully Escaped {0}",
   uriAddress->UserEscaped ? (String^)"yes" : "no" );
Uri uriAddress = new Uri ("http://user:password@www.contoso.com/index.htm ");
Console.WriteLine("Fully Escaped {0}", uriAddress.UserEscaped ? "yes" : "no");
Dim uriAddress As New Uri("http://user:password@www.contoso.com/index.htm ")
Console.WriteLine("Fully Escaped {0}", IIf(uriAddress.UserEscaped, "yes", "no")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements


The UserEscaped property is set to true to indicate that the string used to create the Uri instance was completely escaped before it was passed to the constructor; that is, the dontEscape parameter of the constructor call was set to true.
