Changing System.Path.GetFileName(string path)

In my winform app I use the System.Path.GetFileName(string path).
I would like that if the string is a web address  (like : "http://www.123.com/1.htm") it will return the string without any change.
How can I do this ?

You can check against this situation like :

result = mypath;
if (false==mypath.StartsWith("http://"))
{
     result = System.Path.GetFileName(mypath);
}

Thanks. My ask is about changing the System.Path.GetFileName(string path) so I won't have to check against  any situation in the code.

No, Path.GetFileName() is not doing anything special other than simple string extraction

Please look at below attached code for complete internal implementation of Path.GetFileName(path) method

you can instead use any other method for your purpose as suggested by buraksarica,PatelAlpesh or you can create your own URL validation method
 like below and use this method to check for URL and return the same URL for this method returns true otherwise extract filename by Path.GetFileName() method.


/// <summary>
/// method for validating a url with regular expressions
/// </summary>
/// <param name="url">url we're validating</param>
/// <returns>true if valid, otherwise false</returns>
public static bool isValidUrl(ref string url)
{
    string pattern = @"^(http|https|ftp)\://[a-zA-Z0-9\-\.]+\.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}(:[a-zA-Z0-9]*)?/?([a-zA-Z0-9\-\._\?\,\'/\\\+&amp;%\$#\=~])*[^\.\,\)\(\s]$";
    Regex reg = new Regex(pattern, RegexOptions.Compiled | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
    return reg.IsMatch(url);
}
public static string GetFileName(string path)
{
    if (path != null)
    {
        CheckInvalidPathChars(path);
        int length = path.Length;
        int num2 = length;
        while (--num2 >= 0)
        {
            char ch = path[num2];
            if (((ch == DirectorySeparatorChar) || (ch == AltDirectorySeparatorChar)) || (ch == VolumeSeparatorChar))
            {
                return path.Substring(num2 + 1, (length - num2) - 1);
            }
        }
    }
    return path;
}

if you write Path.GetFileName(@"http:\\www.123k.com\123.htm"); it will return 123.htm however if you append '\' at the end it will return nothing. so you can check if nothing is returned you can take the passed variable as output in the following way:-

string path = @"http:\\www.kochar.com\123.htm";
string result = (Path.GetFileName(path + @"\").Length == 0 ? path : Path.GetFileName(path));

Console.WriteLine("Path is: " + result);
