The GenericUriParser type exposes the following members.


Name Description
GenericUriParser Create a customizable parser for a hierarchical URI.



Name Description
Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
GetComponents Gets the components from a URI. (Inherited from UriParser.)
GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
InitializeAndValidate Initialize the state of the parser and validate the URI. (Inherited from UriParser.)
IsBaseOf Determines whether baseUri is a base URI for relativeUri. (Inherited from UriParser.)
IsWellFormedOriginalString Indicates whether a URI is well-formed. (Inherited from UriParser.)
MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
OnNewUri Invoked by a Uri constructor to get a UriParser instance (Inherited from UriParser.)
OnRegister Invoked by the Framework when a UriParser method is registered. (Inherited from UriParser.)
Resolve Called by Uri constructors and Uri..::.TryCreate()()() to resolve a relative URI. (Inherited from UriParser.)
ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



If you want to create a parser based on a well-known scheme, use HttpStyleUriParser or FtpStyleUriParser.

When creating a customizable parser, the behavior of the parser is specified by passing a bitwise combination of the values available in the System..::.GenericUriParserOptions enumeration to the GenericUriParser constructor.

The existing System..::.Uri class has been extended to provide support for International Resource Identifiers (IRI) and Internationalized Domain Names (IDN). Current users will not see any change from the .NET Framework 2.0 behavior unless they specifically enable IRI. This ensures application compatibility with prior versions of the .NET Framework.

All parsers derived from GenericUriParser will not gain IRI and IDN support by default. The Default option does not include IRI and IDN support. Two new values are added to the System..::.GenericUriParserOptions enumeration to indicate if a custom parser supports IRI and IDN.

For more information on IRI and IDN support, see the Remarks section for the System..::.Uri class.
