I have the code below and I need to add a directory called "maintenance" after the cID. I tried adding it in manually using '+ "\maintenance\"'  after the + cId but it went all squiggly line on me. I am new the ASP MVC (Razor) so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

               {
                    var maintPath = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("MaintenancePath");
                    if (System.IO.Directory.Exists(maintPath))
                    {
                        maintPath += "\\" + cId";
                        var files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(maintPath);
                        foreach (string file in files)
                        {
                            var fileInfo = new System.IO.FileInfo(file);

                            var maintFile = new Models.ContractorMaintenanceFile(cId, file);
                            if (maintFile.IsValid)
                                fileList.Add(maintFile);
                        }
                    }
                }

It's because the \ is a special character you would need to do + "\\maintenance\\" for it to take.

That worked. I had to add it in a couple spots but it eventually worked.

Thanks!

Glad that was all you needed.  Just as an FYI if you place an @ in front of the variable it eliminates the special character.  So for example...

string directory = "c://myfolder//somethingelse//"; could be re-written like:

string directory = @"c:/myfolder/somethingelse/";

And those would yield the exact same results.  But with the @ in front, it makes it easier to look at.
