Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|FileSystemInfo()||Initializes a new instance of the class.|
|FileSystemInfo(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)||Initializes a new instance of the class with serialized data.|
|Attributes||Gets or sets the attributes for the current file or directory.|
|CreationTime||Gets or sets the creation time of the current file or directory.|
|CreationTimeUtc||Gets or sets the creation time, in coordinated universal time (UTC), of the current file or directory.|
|Exists||Gets a value indicating whether the file or directory exists.|
|Extension||Gets the string representing the extension part of the file.|
|FullName||Gets the full path of the directory or file.|
|LastAccessTime||Gets or sets the time the current file or directory was last accessed.|
|LastAccessTimeUtc||Gets or sets the time, in coordinated universal time (UTC), that the current file or directory was last accessed.|
|LastWriteTime||Gets or sets the time when the current file or directory was last written to.|
|LastWriteTimeUtc||Gets or sets the time, in coordinated universal time (UTC), when the current file or directory was last written to.|
|Name||For files, gets the name of the file. For directories, gets the name of the last directory in the hierarchy if a hierarchy exists. Otherwise, the Name property gets the name of the directory.|
|CreateObjRef||Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|Delete||Deletes a file or directory.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetLifetimeService||Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|GetObjectData||Sets the SerializationInfo object with the file name and additional exception information.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|InitializeLifetimeService||Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone()||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone(Boolean)||Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|Refresh||Refreshes the state of the object.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The class contains methods that are common to file and directory manipulation. A object can represent either a file or a directory, thus serving as the basis for FileInfo or DirectoryInfo objects. Use this base class when parsing a lot of files and directories.
A derived class can inherit from only if the derived class has the AllAccess permission from the FileIOPermissionAccess enumeration.
In members that accept a path, the path can refer to a file or just a directory. The specified path can also refer to a relative path or a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path for a server and share name. For example, all the following are acceptable paths:
"c:\\MyDir\\MyFile.txt" in C#, or "c:\MyDir\MyFile.txt" in Visual Basic.
"c:\\MyDir" in C#, or "c:\MyDir" in Visual Basic.
"MyDir\\MySubdir" in C#, or "MyDir\MySubDir" in Visual Basic.
"\\\\MyServer\\MyShare" in C#, or "\\MyServer\MyShare" in Visual Basic.
