I am attempting in C# to remove part of a name from a string.
Using the method Bellow i am able to get all of the data from a predefined directory and place it into a Checked List Box for the user to select.  My problem is that each line looks like this

C:\Users\von Houk\Documents\Test

i am trying to get it to appear in the box as just

Test

remove all of the directory information from the string.

string[] sPatientNames;
sPatientNames = System.IO.Directory.GetDirectories(dPatientData.Path);
clbPatientSelect.Items.AddRange(sPatientNames);

two questions
clbPatientSelect.Items.AddRange(System.IO.Path.GetFileName(sPatientNames););  

this line has two ; at the end separated by a )
is that supposed to be there it comes up as an error

and also it tells me that it can not be converted from type 'string[]' to 'string'

and the one last comment that is my fault for not saying is that i am pulling folder names, not files
in my program i was using
clbPatientSelect.Items.AddRange(System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(sPatientNames))'

I figured it out



string[] sPatientNames;
sPatientNames = System.IO.Directory.GetDirectories(dPatientData.Path);
 
for (int i = 0; i < sPatientNames.Length; i++)
 {
   sPatientNames[i] = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(sPatientNames[i]);
 }
 
 
clbPatientSelect.Items.AddRange(sPatientNames);
 
Thank you so much for the Help
