FileSystemEntry.name

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The read-only name property of the FileSystemEntry interface returns a USVString specifying the entry's name; this is the entry within its parent directory (the last component of the path as indicated by the fullPath property).

Syntax

var name = FileSystemEntry.name;

Value

A USVString indicating the entry's name.

Example

This example shows a function called isFileWithExtension() which returns true if the specified FileSystemEntry is both a file and the file's name ends with a given extension.

function isFileWithExtension(entry, extension) {
  return (entry.isFile && entry.name.endsWith("." + extension));
}
