UrlMapping UrlMapping UrlMapping UrlMapping Class

Definition

Maps a URL that is displayed to users to the URL of a page in your Web application. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class UrlMapping sealed : System::Configuration::ConfigurationElement
public sealed class UrlMapping : System.Configuration.ConfigurationElement
type UrlMapping = class
    inherit ConfigurationElement
Public NotInheritable Class UrlMapping
Inherits ConfigurationElement
Inheritance

Examples

The following example uses the UrlMappingsSection of the Web.config file to map two URLs, and adds a mapping for an additional URL. When you modify and save the Web.config file, your application restarts.

Remarks

The UrlMapping class allows you to map a URL that is displayed to users to a URL that exists in your Web application. Adding a UrlMapping object to a UrlMappingCollection is the programmatic equivalent to including an add element in the urlMappings section of a configuration file.

Each UrlMapping object contains two properties identifying a URL. One property specifies the URL shown to the user; the other specifies a URL in your Web application. Trailing white-space characters are ignored in both the Url and MappedUrl properties.

Note

The UrlMapping property can write information into the related section of the configuration file according to the restrictions defined by the section property AllowDefinition whose value is MachineToApplication. Any attempt to write in a configuration file at a level not allowed in the hierarchy will result in an error message generated by the parser. However, you can use this class to read configuration information at any level in the hierarchy.
