ExtractToPath Property

A base path to decompress to.



Default Value



Setting the ExtractToPath property affects the operation of the Extract and ExtractAll methods. Setting this property to a nonempty string will cause all decompressed files to be written to the specified path. If pathnames are given in the values of FileDecompressedName they will be regarded as relative to ExtractToPath.

If the specified directory does not exist, it will be created when extraction is done.

ExtractToPath should always be specified in the format native to the host operating system, and with a trailing slash or backslash. If the path is specified otherwise, it will be immediately converted and stored in the converted format. For example, "/temp" would be immediately converted to "\temp\" on a Windows system.

Example (Extracting from an Archive)

ZipControl.ArchiveFile = "c:\temp.zip"
ZipControl.ExtractToPath = "c:\extracted\"

Example - Adding Files

Dim i as Integer
ZipControl.ArchiveFile = "c:\test.zip"
For i = 0 to ZipControl.Files.Count - 1
  ZipControl.Files(i).DecompressedName(i) = "c:\temp\" + ZipControl.Files(i).DecompressedName
Next i
ZipControl.ExtractToPath = ""
