c# - without - razor pages get current url

How to get the URL of the current page in C# (6)

A search landed me at this page, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. Posting here in case someone else looking for what I was lands at this page too.

There is two ways to do it if you only have a string value.

.NET way:

Same as @Canavar, but you can instantiate a new Uri Object

String URL = "http://localhost:1302/TESTERS/Default6.aspx";
System.Uri uri = new System.Uri(URL);

which means you can use the same methods, e.g.

string url = uri.AbsoluteUri;
// http://localhost:1302/TESTERS/Default6.aspx

string host = uri.host
// localhost

Regex way:

This question already has an answer here:

Can anyone help out me in getting the URL of the current working page of ASP.NET in C#?

I guess its enough to return absolute path..

 Path.GetFileName( Request.Url.AbsolutePath )

using System.IO;

Just sharing as this was my solution thanks to Canavar's post.

If you have something like this:


or like this:


and you only want the part that a user would type in then this will work:

String strPathAndQuery = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.PathAndQuery;
String strUrl = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri.Replace(strPathAndQuery, "/");

which would result in these:


Try this :

string url = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri;
// http://localhost:1302/TESTERS/Default6.aspx

string path = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsolutePath;
// /TESTERS/Default6.aspx

string host = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host;
// localhost

a tip for people who needs the path/url in global.asax file;

If you need to run this in global.asax > Application_Start and you app pool mode is integrated then you will receive the error below:

Request is not available in this context exception in Application_Start.

In that case you need to use this:


Hope will help others..

if you just want the part between http:// and the first slash

string url = Request.Url.Host;

would return .com if called from this page
