public static bool IsUrl(string url)
{
string pattern= "^(https?://)"
+ "?(([0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-]+: )?[0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-]+@)?" //user@
+ @"(([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}" // IP- 199.194.52.184
+ "|" // allows either IP or domain
+ @"([0-9a-z_!~*'()-]+\.)*" // tertiary domain(s)- www.
+ @"([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]{0,61})?[0-9a-z]\." // second level domain
+ "[a-z]{2,6})" // first level domain- .com or .museum
+ "(:[0-9]{1,4})?" // port number- :80
+ "((/?)|" // a slash isn't required if there is no file name
+ "(/[0-9a-z_!~*'().;?:@&=+$,%#-]+)+/?)$";
Regex rx = new Regex(pattern);

if (rx.IsMatch(url))
return (true); // if URL is validate
else
return (false); // if URL is not validate.
