IsolatedStorage.SeparatorExternal Property

Gets a backslash character that can be used in a directory string. When overridden in a derived class, another character might be returned.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable ReadOnly Property SeparatorExternal As Char
protected virtual char SeparatorExternal {get;}
protected: __property virtual __wchar_t get_SeparatorExternal();
protected function get SeparatorExternal() : Char;

Property Value

The default implementation returns the '\' character.


Notes to Inheritors:  When you inherit from IsolatedStorage, you can override SeparatorExternal and return a character other than the '\' to control the naming syntax of the store. In a Windows IsolatedStorageFile this separator is a '\'.
