MoveAsync(IStorageFolder)

Moves the current file to the specified folder.

public:
 virtual IAsyncAction ^ MoveAsync(IStorageFolder ^ destinationFolder) = MoveAsync;
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.Overload("MoveOverloadDefaultNameAndOptions")]
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.RemoteAsync]
IAsyncAction MoveAsync(IStorageFolder const& destinationFolder);
[Windows.Foundation.Metadata.Overload("MoveOverloadDefaultNameAndOptions")]
[Windows.Foundation.Metadata.RemoteAsync]
public IAsyncAction MoveAsync(IStorageFolder destinationFolder);
function moveAsync(destinationFolder)
Public Function MoveAsync (destinationFolder As IStorageFolder) As IAsyncAction

Parameters

destinationFolder
IStorageFolder

The destination folder where the file is moved.

This destination folder must be a physical location. Otherwise, if the destination folder exists only in memory, like a file group, this method fails and throws an exception.

Public Function MoveAsync (destinationFolder As IStorageFolder, desiredNewName As String) As IAsyncAction

Parameters

destinationFolder
IStorageFolder
