Dear Sir/Madam,

filename "Sample.doc".

[D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc]
Posted

This is fairly easy to do.

Give it a try - using Basic String Operations[^] should give you an idea.
If you still run into issues, post them here and someone will help you.

Makes sense, voted 5, but it does not teach good practical code. For example, please see my comment to the answer by JF2015.

Yes true. Thanks for the 5 though.
Here is one quick hack that gives you the solution (C#):
C#
string test = @"[D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc]";
string res = test.Replace("[", "");
res = test.Replace("]", "");
res = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(res); //res gives you "sample.doc"

VB.NET:
VB
Dim test As String = "[D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc]"
Dim res As String = test.Replace("[", "")
res = test.Replace("]", "")
res = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(res) 'res gives you "sample.doc"

and here is another one (C#):
C#
string test = @"[D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc]";
string res = test.Replace("[", "");
res = test.Replace("]", "");
string[] splits = res.Split('\\');
res = splits[splits.Length - 1]; //res gives you "sample.doc"

VB.NET:
VB
Dim test As String = "[D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc]"
Dim res As String = test.Replace("[", "")
res = test.Replace("]", "")
Dim splits() As String = res.Split(Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(92))
res = splits((splits.Length - 1))'res gives you "sample.doc"

I voted 4. First part is not so good. For removing [] use string.Trim.

Yes, you are totally right!! Thanks for pointing that out.
you can get as
C#
string ss=@"D:\Employee management system\EMP details11\Sample.doc";
            string[] split = ss.Split(new Char[] { '\\' });

            ArrayList al = new ArrayList();

            foreach (string s in split)
            {

                if (s.Trim() != "")
                    al.Add(s);
            }
            Console.WriteLine(al[3].ToString());
