When you call file access-related functions, you can use enumeration members in your code in place of the actual values.
OpenAccess enumeration defines constants used to identify whether a file can be read from (
Read), written to (
Write), or both (
ReadWrite). A file opened for
Read access cannot be modified, only read from. The following table lists the
OpenAccess enumeration members.
When performing file I/O operations, the
My.Computer.FileSystem object provides greater performance and ease of use than legacy file I/O methods. For more information, see FileSystem object.
