ASP ShortName Property
  • Last Updated : 25 Mar, 2021

The ASP ShortName Property is used to get the short name of the specified file or folder on the system.

Syntax:

  • For File Object:

    FileObject.ShortName
  • For Folder Object:

    FolderObject.ShortName



    The below examples illustrate the ASP ShortName Property.

    Example 1: The below code illustrates the ASP File.ShortName Property.

    ASP




    <%
    dim fs,f
    set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        
    'Getting the file
    set f=fs.GetFile("d:\alargefilename.txt")
      
    'Getting the full name of the file
    Response.Write("Full Name: " & f.Name)
      
    'Getting the short name of the file
    Response.Write("<br>Short Name: " & f.ShortName)
      
    set f=nothing
    set fs=nothing
    %>

    Output:

    Full Name: alargefilename.txt
    Short Name: ALARGE~1.TXT

    Example 2: The below code illustrates the ASP File.ShortName Property.

    ASP




    <%
    dim fs,fol
    set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        
    'Getting the folder
    set fol=fs.GetFolder("d:\geeksforgeeksfolder")
      
    'Getting the full name of the folder
    Response.Write("Full Name: " & fol.Name)
      
    'Getting the short name of the folder
    Response.Write("<br>Short Name: " & fol.ShortName)
      
    set fol=nothing
    set fs=nothing
    %>
