Given a file, and we have to set its attributes using C# program.

File.SetAttributes()

This is a method of "File class, which is used to define (set) new file attributes.

Syntax:

void SetAttributes (path, FileAttributes);

Parameter(s):

  1. path - Filename with its location.
  2. FileAttributes - This object is used to set attributes of file.

File attributes can be following:

  • Archive
  • Compressed
  • Device
  • Hidden
  • ReadOnly, etc

Program

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            
            FileAttributes F1 = File.GetAttributes("B123.TXT");
            Console.WriteLine("Attributes before Method Call are :"+F1.ToString());

            File.SetAttributes("B123.TXT", FileAttributes.ReadOnly);

            FileAttributes F2 = File.GetAttributes("B123.TXT");
            Console.WriteLine("Attributes After Method Call are :" + F2.ToString());

        }
    }
}

Output

Attributes before Method Call are :Hidden, Archive
Attributes After Method Call are :ReadOnly

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