Property Value

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.TempFileCollection

The TempFileCollection that contains the temporary files generated on disk. This value is null if the Load method has not been successfully called, or if debugging has not been enabled.

This property identifies the files that were generated during XSLT processing. The files are placed in your Temp directory (specified by the %TEMP% environment variable) You can delete these files after the XSLT processing has completed.

The following example writes the names of temporary files to the console.


Temporary files are created only when loading style sheets with <msxsl:script> blocks.

// Create the XslCompiledTransform object.
XslCompiledTransform xslt = new XslCompiledTransform(true);

// Load the style sheet and enable scripts.
// Temporary files are created only for style sheets with <msxsl:script> blocks.
xslt.Load("output.xsl", XsltSettings.TrustedXslt, new XmlUrlResolver());

// Transform the file.
xslt.Transform("books.xml", "output.xml");

// Output names of temporary files.
foreach (string filename in xslt.TemporaryFiles)
