abstract member MakePath : string * string -> string

Protected Overridable Function MakePath (parent As String, child As String) As String

Parameters

parent
String

The parent segment of a path to be joined with the child.

child
String

The child segment of a path to be joined with the parent.

Returns

String

A string that represents the parent and child segments of the path joined by a path separator.

Remarks

This method should use lexical joining of two path segments with a path

separator character. It should not validate the path as a legal fully

qualified path in the provider namespace as each parameter could be only

partial segments of a path and joined they may not generate a fully

qualified path.

Example: the file system provider may get "windows\system32" as the parent

parameter and "foo.dll" as the child parameter. The method should join these

with the "" separator and return "windows\system32\foo.dll". Note that

the returned path is not a fully qualified file system path.

Also beware that the path segments may contain characters that are illegal

in the provider namespace. These characters are most likely being used

for globbing and should not be removed by the implementation of this method.

member this.MakePath : string * string * bool -> string
Protected Function MakePath (parent As String, child As String, childIsLeaf As Boolean) As String

Parameters

parent
String

The parent segment of a path to be joined with the child.

child
String

The child segment of a path to be joined with the parent.

childIsLeaf
Boolean

Indicate that the child is the name of a child item that's guaranteed to exist

Returns

String

Remarks

If the childIsLeaf is True, then we don't normalize the child path, and would do some checks to decide whether to normalize the parent path.
