Set LastWriteTime in the Compact Framework RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to change the LastWriteTime property in a smart device project (Windows Mobile 6 Professional), so I'm using the Compact Framework.

    The File class has the support to get the last wirte time (File.GetLastWriteTime), but the methodFile.SetLastWriteTime is not supported.

    I tried using FileInfo class, and its LastWriteTime property, but it is read only for the Compact Framework.

    How can I do?

  • You probably can P/Invoke SetFileTime() API.


    Call CreateFile() to get file handle, then set time and then call CloseHandle() to release file handle.
