Gets the escaped URI fragment.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)


Public ReadOnly Property Fragment As String
public string Fragment { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains any URI fragment information.


Exception Condition

This property is valid only for an absolute Uri instance.


The Fragment property gets any text following a fragment marker (#) in the URI, including the fragment marker itself. Given the URI http://www.contoso.com/index.htm\#mai, the Fragment property would return #main.

The Fragment property is not considered in any Equals comparison.


The following example creates a Uri instance and writes the fragment information to the console.

' Create Uri
Dim uriAddress1 As Uri = New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search")
outputBlock.Text &= uriAddress1.Fragment
outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf

outputBlock.Text &= "Hash code: "
outputBlock.Text &= uriAddress1.GetHashCode()
outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
// Create Uri
Uri uriAddress1 = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search");
outputBlock.Text += uriAddress1.Fragment;
outputBlock.Text += "\n";

outputBlock.Text += "Hash code: ";
outputBlock.Text += uriAddress1.GetHashCode();
outputBlock.Text += "\n";
// Create Uri
Uri uriAddress = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#search");

Console.WriteLine("Hash code {0}", uriAddress.GetHashCode());
