Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains any query information included in the specified URI.


Exception Condition

This property is valid only for an absolute Uri instance.


The Query property contains any query information included in the URI. Query information is separated from the path information by a question mark (?) and continues to the end of the URI. The query information returned includes the leading question mark.

The query information is escaped according to RFC 3986.


The following example writes the query ?date= today to the console.

    Dim baseUri As New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/")
    Dim myUri As New Uri(baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm?date=today")

    outputBlock.Text &= "Uri.Query: "
    outputBlock.Text &= myUri.Query
    outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf

Uri baseUri = new Uri ("http://www.contoso.com/");
Uri myUri = new Uri (baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm?date=today");

outputBlock.Text += "Uri.Query: ";
outputBlock.Text += myUri.Query;
outputBlock.Text += "\n";
