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

The IsFile property is true when the Scheme property equals UriSchemeFile.

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

    Dim uriAddress2 As New Uri("file://server/filename.ext")
    Console.WriteLine(uriAddress2.LocalPath)
    Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a UNC path", IIf(uriAddress2.IsUnc, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
    Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a local host", IIf(uriAddress2.IsLoopback, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
    Console.WriteLine("Uri {0} a file", IIf(uriAddress2.IsFile, "is", "is not")) 'TODO: For performance reasons this should be changed to nested IF statements
