GetBaseName Method

Returns a string containing the base name of the last component, less any file extension, in a path.

The GetBaseName method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.
path Required. The path specification for the component whose base name is to be returned.

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

Note  The GetBaseName method works only on the provided path string. It does not attempt to resolve the path, nor does it check for the existence of the specified path.

The following example illustrates the use of the GetBaseName method:

function ShowBaseName(filespec)
  var fso, s = "";
  fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  s += fso.GetBaseName(filespec);
