GetExtensionName Method

Returns a string containing the extension name for the last component in a path.



Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.
Required. The path specification for the component whose extension name is to be returned.


For network drives, the root directory (\) is considered to be a component.

The GetExtensionName method returns a zero-length string ("") if no component matches the path argument.

The following example illustrates the use of the GetExtensionName method.

function ShowExtensionName(filespec)
   var fso, s = "";
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   s += fso.GetExtensionName(filespec);
Function GetAnExtension(DriveSpec)
   Dim fso
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   GetAnExtension = fso.GetExtensionName(Drivespec)
End Function
