    IDictionary<string, string> parameters


Return Value

Type: System.Uri


The IDictionary<String, String> parameter contains a collection of parameter name and value pairs. The parameters are matched up against the variables within the template by a case-insensitive comparison.


The name/value collection passed to this method must contain a key for every template variable. Extra name/value pairs that do not match template variables are appended to the query string of the final URI.

Security noteSecurity Note:

It is possible to pass in text within the name/value pairs that prevent the generated URI from matching the template that is used to generate it. Examples of such text includes: '/', '..', '*', '{', and '}'.
