Name Property

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Gets the name of this DirectoryInfo instance.

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

public override string Name { get; }

Property Value

Type: System..::..String
The directory name.

This Name property returns only the name of the directory, such as "Bin". To get the full path, such as "c:\public\Bin", use the FullName property.

The Name property of a DirectoryInfo requires no permission (beyond the read permission to the directory necessary to construct the Exists) but can give out the directory name. If it is necessary to hand out a DirectoryInfo to a protected directory with a cryptographically secure name, create a dummy directory for the untrusted code’s use.
