The UriParser type exposes the following members.


Name Description
UriParser Constructs a default URI parser.



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.
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.
IsBaseOf Determines whether baseUri is a base URI for relativeUri.
IsKnownScheme Indicates whether the parser for a scheme is registered.
IsWellFormedOriginalString Indicates whether a URI is well-formed.
MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
OnNewUri Invoked by a Uri constructor to get a UriParser instance
OnRegister Invoked by the Framework when a UriParser method is registered.
Register Associates a scheme and port number with a UriParser.
Resolve Called by Uri constructors and Uri..::.TryCreate()()() to resolve a relative URI.
ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



The UriParser class enables you to create parsers for new URI schemes. You can write these parsers in their entirety, or the parsers can be derived from well-known schemes (HTTP, FTP, and other schemes based on network protocols). If you want to create a completely new parser, inherit from GenericUriParser. If you want to create a parser that extends a well-known URI scheme, inherit from FtpStyleUriParser, HttpStyleUriParser, or FileStyleUriParser.

Microsoft strongly recommends that you use a parser shipped with the .NET Framework. Building your own parser increases the complexity of your application, and will not perform as well as the shipped parsers.
