Provides an object representation of a URL and easy access to the parts of the URL.

Object Creation

obj = Chilkat::CkUrl.new()

Properties

Frag
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Frag(ckStr);
strVal = url.frag();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

Contains any text following a fragment marker (#) in the URL, excluding the fragment marker. Given the URI http://www.contoso.com/index.htm#main, the fragment is "main".

top
Host
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Host(ckStr);
strVal = url.host();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The DNS host name or IP address part of the URL. For example, if the URL is "http://www.contoso.com:8080/", the Host is "www.contoso.com". If the URL is "https://192.168.1.124/test.html", the Host is "192.168.1.124".

HostType
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_HostType(ckStr);
strVal = url.hostType();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The type of the host name specified in the URL. Possible values are:

  • "dns": The host name is a domain name system (DNS) style host name.
  • "ipv4": The host name is an Internet Protocol (IP) version 4 host address.
  • "ipv6": The host name is an Internet Protocol (IP) version 6 host address.

LastMethodSuccess
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = url.get_LastMethodSuccess();
url.put_LastMethodSuccess(boolVal);

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of true indicates success, a value of false indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = true and failure = false.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to true. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

Login
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Login(ckStr);
strVal = url.login();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

If the URL contains a login and password, this is the login part. For example, if the URL is "http://user:password@www.contoso.com/index.htm ", then the login is "user".

Password
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Password(ckStr);
strVal = url.password();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

If the URL contains a login and password, this is the password part. For example, if the URL is "http://user:password@www.contoso.com/index.htm ", then the password is "password".

top
Path
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Path(ckStr);
strVal = url.path();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The path (and params) part of the URL, excluding the query and fragment. If the URL is: "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1476752842/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1", then the path is "/gp/product/1476752842/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i3".

PathWithQueryParams
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_PathWithQueryParams(ckStr);
strVal = url.pathWithQueryParams();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.58

The path (and params) part of the URL, including the query params, but excluding the fragment. If the URL is: "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1476752842/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1", then then this property returns "/gp/product/1476752842/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1".

top
Port
# intVal is an integer
intVal = url.get_Port();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The port number of the URL.

For example, if the URL is "http://www.contoso.com:8080/", the port number is 8080.
If the URL is "https://192.168.1.124/test.html", the port number is the default 80.
If the URL is "https://www.amazon.com/", the port number is the default SSL/TLS port 443.

Query
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
url.get_Query(ckStr);
strVal = url.query();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

The query part of the URL, excluding the fragment. If the URL is: "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1476752842/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1#frag", then the query is "pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1".

Ssl
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = url.get_Ssl();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.49

true if the URL indicates SSL/TLS, otherwise false. A URL beginning with "https://" indicates SSL/TLS.

top
Utf8
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = url.get_Utf8();
url.put_Utf8(boolVal);

When set to true, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to false (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to true, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to false, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.
