Specifies that the URI is a pointer to a file. This field is read-only.
public static readonly string UriSchemeFile
In .NET Framework version 1.1, a "file:///path" URI was translated to "file:/path". This has been corrected for version 2.0.
The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether the scheme is UriSchemeFile.
Uri address2 = new Uri("file://server/filename.ext");
if (address2.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeFile)
Console.WriteLine("Uri is a file");
