Public ReadOnly Property SafeFileName As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that only contains the file name for the selected file. The default is Empty, which is also the value when either no file is selected or a directory is selected.

This value is the FileName with all path information removed. Removing the paths makes the value appropriate for use in partial trust applications, since it prevents applications from discovering information about the local file system.

If more than one file name is selected (length of SafeFileNames is greater than one) then this property contains only the first selected file name.
