StorageFolder.Path | path property

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets the full file-system path of the current folder, if the folder has a path.

Important  Although StorageFolder is supported in Windows Store apps, this member is also supported in desktop apps. To acquire a StorageFolder object in a desktop app, use Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.InstalledLocation.


var path = storageFolder.path;

Property value

Type: String [JavaScript] | System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

The full path of the folder, if the folder has a path in the user's file-system.


Do not rely on this property to access a folder because some folders may not have file-system paths. For example if the folder is a file group, or is backed by a URI, or was picked using the file picker, the folder is not guaranteed to have a file-system path.
