how to recover all uri but the filename ?

hello experts,

i have an Uri object that i'd like to use in order to create a new file.
i'd like to change the last info in the Uri in order to keep the path.

is there an easy way to achieve this ?

example:
Uri test = new Uri(@"c:\path\to\the\file.txt");   // 1. i have an Uri.
ChangeFile(test, "otherFile.txt")                      // 2. change the file for the same uri
Uri test -> c:\path\to\the\otherFile.txt            // 3. now my uri is changed.  

thank you in advance.

hi

use a combination of the following as you eed

 
       Dim folder As String = IO.Path.GetDirectoryName("old path")
        Dim filename As String = IO.Path.GetFileName("old path")
        Dim NewFilename As String = "predicate" & filename
        IO.Path.Combine(folder, "new filename")

oops sorry made a small error

Dim folder As String = IO.Path.GetDirectoryName("old path")
Dim filename As String = IO.Path.GetFileName("old path")
Dim NewFilename As String = "predicate" & filename
Dim newlocation As String = IO.Path.Combine(folder, "new filename")

something like this:

int position = uri.LocalPath.LastIndexOf('\\');
String newPath = uri.LocalPath.Right(position) + 'otherFile.txt';

or the c# version seeing as we are in the c# section

Its better to use the .net path library than to guess the structure will adhere to a predicted format and use string functions

string folder = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName("old path");
string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName("old path");
string NewFilename = "predicate" + filename;
string newlocation = System.IO.Path.Combine(folder, "new filename");

happy coding :-)

I'm making mistakes all over the place today

string folder = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName("old path");
string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName("old path");
string NewFilename = "predicate" + filename;
string newlocation = System.IO.Path.Combine(folder, NewFilename );

Open in new window


this could of course be condensed into a one liner


string NewURI = System.IO.Path.Combine(System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName("old path"), "predicate" + System.IO.Path.GetFileName("old path"));
