How do I get the full url of the page I am on in C#

165

I need to be able to get at the full URL of the page I am on from a user control. Is it just a matter of concatenating a bunch of Request variables together? If so which ones? Or is there a more simpiler way?

This question is tagged with c# asp.net user-controls

I usually use Request.Url.ToString() to get the full url (including querystring), no concatenation required.

Here is a list I normally refer to for this type of information:

Request.ApplicationPath :   /virtual_dir
Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath :  /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx
Request.FilePath :  /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx
Request.Path :  /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx
Request.PhysicalApplicationPath :   d:\Inetpub\wwwroot\virtual_dir\
Request.QueryString :   /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx?q=qvalue
Request.Url.AbsolutePath :  /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx
Request.Url.AbsoluteUri :   http://localhost:2000/virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx?q=qvalue
Request.Url.Host :  localhost
Request.Url.Authority : localhost:80
Request.Url.LocalPath : /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx
Request.Url.PathAndQuery :  /virtual_dir/webapp/page.aspx?q=qvalue
Request.Url.Port :  80
Request.Url.Query : ?q=qvalue
Request.Url.Scheme :    http
Request.Url.Segments :  /
    virtual_dir/
    webapp/
    page.aspx

Hopefully you will find this useful!

Request.Url.AbsoluteUri

This property does everything you need, all in one succinct call.

For ASP.NET Core you'll need to spell it out:

@($"{Context.Request.Scheme}://{Context.Request.Host}{Context.Request.Path}{Context.Request.QueryString}")

Or you can add a using statement to your view:

@using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http.Extensions

then

@Context.Request.GetDisplayUrl()

The _ViewImports.cshtml might be a better place for that @using

if you need the full URL as everything from the http to the querystring you will need to concatenate the following variables

Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS") // to check if it's HTTP or HTTPS
Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME") 
Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME") 
Request.ServerVariables("QUERY_STRING")

Request.RawUrl

Better to use Request.Url.OriginalString than Request.Url.ToString() (according to MSDN)

Thanks guys, I used a combination of both your answers @Christian and @Jonathan for my specific need.

"http://" + Request.ServerVariables["SERVER_NAME"] +  Request.RawUrl.ToString()

I don't need to worry about secure http, needed the servername variable and the RawUrl handles the path from the domain name and includes the querystring if present.

If you need the port number also, you can use

Request.Url.Authority

Example:

string url = Request.Url.Authority + HttpContext.Current.Request.RawUrl.ToString();

if (Request.ServerVariables["HTTPS"] == "on")
{
    url = "https://" + url;
}
else 
{
    url = "http://" + url;
}

Try the following -

var FullUrl = Request.Url.AbsolutePath.ToString();
var ID = FullUrl.Split('/').Last();
