virtual bool DirectoryExists(
	String^ virtualDir
)

Parameters

virtualDir
Type: System::String^

The path to the virtual directory.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the directory exists in the virtual file system; otherwise, false.

If your custom VirtualPathProvider class does not support directories, the DirectoryExists method should return false.

System_CAPS_noteNote

If your virtual file system will contain themes for the Web site (by creating a virtual App_Themes directory), your custom VirtualPathProvider class must support directories.

The following code example is an implementation of the DirectoryExists method in a custom VirtualPathProvider class. For the full code required to run the example, see the Example section of the VirtualPathProvider class overview topic.
