IFileName Interface

Provides access to the pathnames of files.


The IFileName interface provides a method to identfiy some data without it necessarily having to exist in a directory structure.


Name Description
Read/write property Path Pathname to the file.

IFileName.Path Property

Pathname to the file.

Public Property Path As String
public string Path {get; set;}


The Path to the file. The data specified by the Path does not necessarily have to exist in a directory structure.


When using a FileName, the IName::Open method does not function properly, so you need to use whatever programmatic file-access technique is appropriate from yourdevelopment environment standpoint.
