The following example demonstrates the use of the GetFileName method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the StackFrame class.

// Display the stack frame properties.
StackFrame sf = st.GetFrame(i);
Console.WriteLine(" File: {0}", sf.GetFileName());
Console.WriteLine(" Line Number: {0}", 
   sf.GetFileLineNumber());
// Note that the column number defaults to zero 
// when not initialized.
Console.WriteLine(" Column Number: {0}", 
   sf.GetFileColumnNumber());
if (sf.GetILOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN)
{
   Console.WriteLine(" Intermediate Language Offset: {0}", 
      sf.GetILOffset());
}
if (sf.GetNativeOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN)
{
   Console.WriteLine(" Native Offset: {0}", 
      sf.GetNativeOffset());
}
