Property Value

Type: System::Boolean

A Boolean value that is true if the Uri is a file URI; otherwise, false.

Exception Condition

This instance represents a relative URI, and this property is valid only for absolute URIs.

The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether it is a file URI.

Uri^ uriAddress2 = gcnew Uri( "file://server/filename.ext" );
Console::WriteLine( uriAddress2->LocalPath );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a UNC path", uriAddress2->IsUnc ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a local host", uriAddress2->IsLoopback ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
Console::WriteLine( "Uri {0} a file", uriAddress2->IsFile ? (String^)"is" : "is not" );
