What is the difference between Path.GetTempFileName and FileIO.FileSystem.GetTempFileName? RRS feed


  • Hello,

    With Path.GetTempFileName() a known/specific exception can be captured while FileIO.FileSystem.GetTempFileName does not have a known/specific exception.

    And Path.GetTempFileName is usable on cross platform where FileIO.FileSystem.GetTempFileName is not so I would recommend Path.GetTempFileName.
