Given a file and a directory and we have to get and print their last access time in UTC format using C# program.

To get last access time of file or directory in UTC format in C#, we use File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc() method.

File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc()

This is a method of "File" class, which returns the last access time of a file or a directory in UTC format.

Syntax

File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc(path);

Parameter(s)

  1. path - Location of file or directory.

Last access time contains following detail:

  • Date
  • Month
  • Year
  • Hour
  • Minute
  • Second
  • AM/PM

C# program to get last access time of file or directory in UTC format

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1 {
  class Program {
    static void Main() {
      DateTime dt1;
      DateTime dt2;

      dt1 = File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc("ABC.TXT");
      Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of file(ABC.TXT) in UTC: " + dt1);

      dt2 = File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc("mydir");
      Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of directory(mydir) in UTC : " + dt2);

    }
  }
}

Output

Last Access Time of file(ABC.TXT) in UTC: 10/31/2017 4:25:36 PM
Last Access Time of directory(mydir) in UTC : 10/31/2017 3:38:23 PM

Explanation

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