Property Value

Type: System.String
The path to the file. The default is an empty string ("").


You can use this property to close any instances of an open file in response to the DeletingDocument event, and for opening the file in response to the DocumentActivated event.


The following code example defines a method that handles the DeletingDocument event. It uses the Path property of the DocumentListEventArgs to get the path to the deleted file. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DocumentList class.

' Handle the DeletingDocument  
' event with code to close the file. 
 Private Sub DocList_DeletingDocument(ByVal sender As Object, _
 ByVal docevent As Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms.DocumentListEventArgs) _
 Handles DocumentList1.DeletingDocument

     StatusBar1.Text = "Deleted: " & docevent.Path
     ' Add code to close any instances of the file. 
 End Sub
private void OnDelDoc(object obj, DocumentListEventArgs docg)
    statusBar1.Text += "Deleted: " + docg.Path;

    // Add code to close any instances of the file.
