Creates or overwrites a file in the specified path.

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

static FileStream^ Create(
	String^ path


Type: System..::..String
The path and name of the file to create.

Return Value

Type: System.IO..::..FileStream
A FileStream that provides read/write access to the file specified in path.

The FileStream object created by this method has a default FileShare value of None; no other process or code can access the created file until the original file handle is closed.

This method is equivalent to the Create(String, Int32) method overload using the default buffer size.

The path parameter is permitted to 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.

If the specified file does not exist, it is created; if it does exist and it is not read-only, the contents are overwritten.
