if (Request.Query.ContainsKey("ReturnUrl"))
  StringValues values;
  if (Request.Query.TryGetValue("ReturnUrl", out values))
    string firstValue = values[0].ToLower();

    if (firstValue.Contains("/filemanager/select") || firstValue.Contains("/help"))
      return View("BlankLogin");
var urlHelperFactory = _httpContext.RequestServices.GetService<IUrlHelperFactory>();
var actionAccessor = _httpContext.RequestServices.GetService<IActionContextAccessor>();
IUrlHelper urlHelper = urlHelperFactory.GetUrlHelper(actionAccessor.ActionContext);
