UriSchemeFile Field

Uri.UriSchemeFile Field

Specifies that the URI is a pointer to a file. This field is read-only.

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

public static readonly string UriSchemeFile
public static final String UriSchemeFile
public static final var UriSchemeFile : String
Not applicable.

In .NET Framework version 1.1, a "file:///path" URI was translated to "file:/path". This has been corrected for version 2.0.

The following example creates a Uri instance and determines whether the scheme is UriSchemeFile.

Uri address2 =  new Uri("file://server/filename.ext");
if (address2.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeFile) 
    Console.WriteLine("Uri is a file");
