Property Value

Type: System.String

The file name and extension for the file selected in the dialog box. The file name does not include the path. The default value is an empty string.

A safe file name (just the file name and extension without a path) can be used to improve security for applications because it does not expose path information. This property should be accessible to code running with limited trust.
