Get file name from a path string in C#
fileName = Path.GetFileName (path);
I program in WPF C#. I have e.g. the following Path:
and I want to output "hello" from it.
The path is a string extract from database. Currently I'm using the following method (split from path by '\' then split again by a '.'):
string path = "C:\\Program Files\\hello.txt"; string pathArr = path.Split('\\'); string fileArr = pathArr.Last().Split('.'); string fileName = fileArr.Last().ToString();
It works, but I believe there should be shorter and smarter solution to that. Any idea?
You can use Path API as follow:
var filenNme = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension([File Path]);
More info: Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension
string Location = "C:\\Program Files\\hello.txt"; string FileName = Location.Substring(Location.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1);
string fileName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(@"C:\Program Files\hello.txt");
This will return "hello" for fileName.
