Uri.UriSchemeFile Field

Specifies that the URI is a pointer to a file. This field is read-only.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly UriSchemeFile As String

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.

Dim address2 As New Uri("file://server/filename.ext")
If address2.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeFile Then
    Console.WriteLine("Uri is a file")
End If
