FileSystem.GetDirectoryInfo Method (String)
Returns a DirectoryInfo object for the specified path.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)
The path is not valid for one of the following reasons: it is a zero-length string; it contains only white space; it contains invalid characters; or it is a device path (starts with \\.\).
directory is Nothing or an empty string.
The path exceeds the system-defined maximum length.
The directory path contains a colon (:) or is in an invalid format.
The user lacks necessary permissions to view the path
If the directory does not exist, an exception is not thrown until the first time a property on the DirectoryInfo object is accessed.
This example gets a DirectoryInfo object for the directory C:\Documents and Settings and displays the directory's creation time, last access time, and last write time.
Dim getInfo = My.Computer.FileSystem.GetDirectoryInfo( My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.MyDocuments) MsgBox("The directory was created at " & getInfo.CreationTime) MsgBox("The directory was last accessed at " & getInfo.LastAccessTime) MsgBox("The directory was last written to at " & getInfo.LastWriteTime)
