Greetings:

I'm hoping to get code and supporting namespace that will execute the following routine:

FileExits()

For example:

using ??

void CheckFile()
{
...                      // necessary variables like 'string FilePath'
FileExists()        // correct call
return;
}

Thanks

Hi,

See the code below. You call the method like this:

bool fileExists = FileTools.CheckFile(@"c:\tmp2.xml");

Good Luck!

using System.IO;
 
namespace MyProjects {
    public class FileTools {
 
        public static bool CheckFile(string filename) {
            return File.Exists(filename) ? true : false;
        }
 
    }
}

Open in new window
