Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

public string Path { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that represents the path of the currently selected directory. The default is the current path when the control is created at run time.

Use this property when you are building an application's file-browsing and manipulation capabilities. When you set the Path property, the effects are similar to the effects of the MS-DOS chdir command; relative paths are enabled with or without a drive specification. If you specify only a drive with a colon (:),the current directory on that drive is selected.

The Path property can also be set to a qualified network path without a drive connection using the following syntax:


Changing the value of Path for a DirListBox control generates an Change event.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
