FileListBox.Path Property

Gets or sets the current path for a FileListBox.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public string Path { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains the current path, not including the file name.

The value of the Path property is a string indicating a path, such as C:\Ob or C:\Windows\System. For a FileListBox control, the default is the current path when the control is created at run time.

Use this property when you are building an application's file-browsing and manipulation capabilities. Setting the Path property has effects similar to the MS-DOS chdir command; relative paths are allowed with or without a drive specification. Specifying only a drive with a colon (:) selects the current directory on that drive.

The Path property can also be set to a qualified network path without a drive connection using the following syntax:

\\servername\sharename\path

Changing the value of Path for a FileListBox control generates an PathChange event.

NoteNote

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
