.NET/C#: Cleaning up path names with invalid characters (via: validation – C# Sanitize File Name – Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/11/13

Thanks Andre for this cleanup code:

To clean up a file name you could do this

private static string MakeValidFileName(string name)
string invalidChars = Regex.Escape( new string( Path.GetInvalidFileNameChars() ) );
string invalidReStr = string.Format( @"[{0}]+", invalidChars );
return Regex.Replace( name, invalidReStr, "_" );

Next to GetInvalidFileNameChars, you have GetInvalidPathChars.


via: validation – C# Sanitize File Name – Stack Overflow.
