DirectoryInfo.Name Property

Gets the name of this DirectoryInfo instance.

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

public override string Name { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The directory name.

This Name property returns only the name of the directory, such as "Bin". To get the full path, such as "c:\public\Bin", use the FullName property.

The Name property of a DirectoryInfo requires no permission (beyond the read permission to the directory necessary to construct the Exists) but can give out the directory name. If it is necessary to hand out a DirectoryInfo to a protected directory with a cryptographically secure name, create a dummy directory for the untrusted code’s use.

For a list of common I/O tasks, see Common I/O Tasks.

The following example displays the name of the current DirectoryInfo instance only.

using System;
using System.IO;

class GetAName
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo(".");
        String dirName=dir.Name;
        Console.WriteLine("DirectoryInfo name is {0}.", dirName);
    }
}
