Get file name from a path string in C#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?
How to extract the filename from a path
string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName("/Images/She.jpg");
This will work, as long as you don't have anything too complicated in your path, e.g. query parameters after the file name.
var files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles( "@"C:\Users\ME\Desktop\videos", "*.mp4", System.IO.SearchOption.AllDirectories)
using System.IO to do that as well.
string filename = Path.GetFileName(@'C:\Sys\Axa_Excel\Axa123.xlsx'); string filenamewithoutextension = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(@'C:\Sys\Axa_Excel\Axa123.xlsx');
