The FullName is a property of DirectoryInfo class, it returns the full (complete) path of given directory.


string DirectoryInfo.FullName


  1. None

Return Value

Returns the complete path of given directory.

Example: C# program to get the full path of the given directory

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1 {
  class Program {
    static void Main() {
      DirectoryInfo d = new DirectoryInfo("mydir");

      Console.WriteLine("FullName of directory:");



FullName of directory:
C:\Users\Arvind\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ihelp\ConsoleApplication1\


In this program, we create an object of DirectoryInfo class and initialize with a "directory-name", then get complete path of given directory using FullName property of DirectoryInfo class.

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "DirectoryInfo" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.
