Member Data Documentation

readonly attribute AString nsILocalFileWin::canonicalPath

The canonical path of the file, which avoids short/long pathname inconsistencies.

The nsILocalFile persistent descriptor is not guaranteed to be canonicalized (it may persist either the long or the short path name). The format of the canonical path will vary with the underlying file system: it will typically be the short pathname on filesystems that support both short and long path forms.

attribute unsigned long nsILocalFileWin::fileAttributesWin


Set or get windows specific file attributes.

Throws NS_ERROR_FILE_INVALID_PATH for an invalid file. Throws NS_ERROR_FAILURE if the set or get fails.
