Delete Method (String)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Deletes an empty directory from a specified path.

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

public static void Delete(
	string path
)

Parameters

path
Type: System..::..String
The name of the empty directory to remove. This directory must be writable or empty.

This method behaves identically to Delete(String, Boolean) with false specified for the second parameter.

The path parameter may specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.

Trailing spaces are removed from the end of the path parameter before deleting the directory.

This method throws an IOException if the directory specified in the path parameter contains files or subdirectories.

The path parameter is not case-sensitive.
