  3. System.IO.FileInfo, check Attributes property, and then test Directory

    Hi Mark,

    Yeah I am using FileSystemWatcher but I am trying another approach too...
    Suppose you have created an exe that uses path: C:\Temp and in this folder
    there are is a file or Directory, I want to see whether it a file or
    (just like -> isFile, isDirectory)

    Hope I am presenting my idea,

    HI Ravi,
    I will take a look at FileSystemInfo.Attibutes

    Thanks all,
