Property Value

A String that contains the current path, not including the file name.

The value of the Path property is a string indicating a path, such as C:\Ob or C:\Windows\System. For a FileListBox control, 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. Setting the Path property has effects similar to the MS-DOS chdir command; relative paths are allowed with or without a drive specification. Specifying only a drive with a colon (:) selects the current directory on that drive.

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 FileListBox control generates an PathChange event.
