    params string[] paths
)

  • paths
    Type: array<System.String[]
    An array of parts of the path.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

One of the strings in the array contains one or more of the invalid characters defined in GetInvalidPathChars.

ArgumentNullException

One of the strings in the array is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Remarks

paths should be an array of the parts of the path to combine. If the one of the subsequent paths is an absolute path, then the combine operation resets starting with that absolute path, discarding all previous combined paths.

Zero-length strings are omitted from the combined path.
