IRouteConstraint.Match(HttpContextBase, Route, String, RouteValueDictionary, RouteDirection) Method

Definition

Determines whether the URL parameter contains a valid value for this constraint.

public:
 bool Match(System::Web::HttpContextBase ^ httpContext, System::Web::Routing::Route ^ route, System::String ^ parameterName, System::Web::Routing::RouteValueDictionary ^ values, System::Web::Routing::RouteDirection routeDirection);
public bool Match (System.Web.HttpContextBase httpContext, System.Web.Routing.Route route, string parameterName, System.Web.Routing.RouteValueDictionary values, System.Web.Routing.RouteDirection routeDirection);
abstract member Match : System.Web.HttpContextBase * System.Web.Routing.Route * string * System.Web.Routing.RouteValueDictionary * System.Web.Routing.RouteDirection -> bool

Parameters

httpContext
HttpContextBase

An object that encapsulates information about the HTTP request.

route
Route

The object that this constraint belongs to.

parameterName
String

The name of the parameter that is being checked.

values
RouteValueDictionary

An object that contains the parameters for the URL.

routeDirection
RouteDirection

An object that indicates whether the constraint check is being performed when an incoming request is being handled or when a URL is being generated.

Returns

true if the URL parameter contains a valid value; otherwise, false.

Remarks

You use the Match method to add validation logic for the constraint. This method is called by the routing framework when an incoming request is processed and when a URL is constructed. You can determine the current scenario by examining the routeDirection parameter.

When a request is processed, the routing framework determines whether the pattern and values of the incoming request match the pattern and constraints of the route. When a URL is constructed, the routing framework determines whether the values supplied when the GetVirtualPath method is called match the pattern and constraints of the route.
