ZipArchiveEntry.FullName Property

.NET Framework 4.5

Gets the relative path of the entry in the zip archive.

Namespace:  System.IO.Compression
Assembly:  System.IO.Compression (in System.IO.Compression.dll)

Public Property FullName As String

Property Value

Type: System.String
The relative path of the entry in the zip archive.

The FullName property contains the relative path, including the subdirectory hierarchy, of an entry in a zip archive. (In contrast, the Name property contains only the name of the entry and does not include the subdirectory hierarchy.) For example, if you create two entries in a zip archive by using the CreateEntryFromFile method and provide NewEntry.txt as the name for the first entry and AddedFolder\\NewEntry.txt for the second entry, both entries will have NewEntry.txt in the Name property. The first entry will also have NewEntry.txt in the FullName property, but the second entry will have AddedFolder\\NewEntry.txt in the FullName property.

You can specify any string as the path of an entry, including strings that specify invalid and absolute paths. Therefore, the FullName property might contain a value that is not correctly formatted. An invalid or absolute path might result in an exception when you extract the contents of the zip archive.

The following example shows how to iterate through the contents of a .zip file, and extract files that contain the .txt extension.

Imports System.IO
Imports System.IO.Compression

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim zipPath As String = "c:\example\start.zip" 
        Dim extractPath As String = "c:\example\extract" 

        Using archive As ZipArchive = ZipFile.OpenRead(zipPath)
            For Each entry As ZipArchiveEntry In archive.Entries
                If entry.FullName.EndsWith(".txt", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase) Then
                    entry.ExtractToFile(Path.Combine(extractPath, entry.FullName))
                End If 
        End Using 
    End Sub 

End Module
