TestContext.AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix Field

Represents the prefix for ASP.NET Development Server.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll)


Public Const AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix As String
public const string AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix
literal String^ AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix
static val mutable AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix: string
public const var AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix : String


The value of this constant is "AspNetDevelopmentServer."

In most cases, you will not use this string directly because you can use the TryUrlRedirection method to direct Web service calls to the correct URL.

If you want to get the URL prefix for the ASP.NET Development Server instance that is launched as a result of specifying the AspNetDevelopmentServerAttribute on your test, then you must use this string. Use this string together with the name that you specified in the AspNetDevelopmentServerAttribute. See the following code snippet for more information.


[AspNetDevelopmentServerAttribute("MyServer", @"c:\websites\website1", "/website1")]
public void Test()
    Uri uriPrefix = TestContext.Properties[TestContext.AspNetDevelopmentServerPrefix + "MyServer"];
