Need to find where URL's are constructed in various C#.NET solutions

Need to find where query params are added to a .NET Solution.

I need to search through multiple solutions and find the many places where query string params are added to the URL. So, I wonder about all the ways this can be done.

Have you got any searches I can do that would help me track those down?

My fear is that finding them all would be nearly impossible, given you can insert a query parameter just be concatenating a string.

But, please make suggestions about explicit commands and objects used, and other more general keywords I can search for, to discover where URL's are being created.

Depending on how the query is formed it should have either a reference to domain name variable or domain name itself, you can also look for "&" or "?"
If you want to use an external tool and not VS to search you can use the following:

Can you think of any character string more unique than & and ?

I imagine that would match every file in the project.

I assume things like:

would be a good start.

How about?

Can you suggest some others?

Depends on how they are in the code they may have http or there may be just a variable.

It will be almost impossible since it is simply a string. So any string manipulation commands are potential targets.
