[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public string[] SafeFileNames { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String[]
An array of file names and extensions for all the selected files in the dialog box. The file names do not include the path. If no files are selected, an empty array is returned.

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.
