C# Sharp Exercises: Create a file and move the file into the same folder to another name

C# Sharp File Handling: Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a program in C# Sharp to create a file and move the file into the same directory to another name.

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;

        
public class SimpleFileMove
{
    static void Main()
    {

        string sfileName = @"mytest.txt";
        string tfileName = @"mynewtest.txt";   	
	
/*      string sourcefolder = "path";  // you can mention the path of source folder
		string targetfolder = "path"; // you can mention the path of target folder 
		string sourceFile = System.IO.Path.Combine(sourcefolder, sfileName); // combine the source file with path
		string targetFile = System.IO.Path.Combine(targetfolder, tfileName);   // combine the target file with path */

            if (File.Exists(sfileName))
            {
                File.Delete(sfileName);
            }
			if (File.Exists(tfileName))
            {
                File.Delete(tfileName);
            }
			Console.Write("\n\n Create a file and move the file in same folder to another name  :\n");
			Console.Write("----------------------------------------------------------------------\n");           
            // Create the file.
            using (StreamWriter fileStr = File.CreateText(sfileName)) 
            {
                fileStr.WriteLine(" Hello and Welcome");
                fileStr.WriteLine(" It is the first content");
                fileStr.WriteLine(" of the text file mytest.txt");
            }	            
            using (StreamReader sr = File.OpenText(sfileName))
            {
                string s = "";
				Console.WriteLine(" Here is the content of the file {0} : ",sfileName);
                while ((s = sr.ReadLine()) != null)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(s);
                }
                Console.WriteLine("");
            }        		
        System.IO.File.Move(sfileName, tfileName); // move a file to another name in same location:
        Console.WriteLine(" The file {0} successfully moved to the name {1} in the same directory.",sfileName,tfileName );	

using (StreamReader sr = File.OpenText(tfileName))
            {
                string s = "";
				Console.WriteLine(" Here is the content of the file {0} : ",tfileName);
                while ((s = sr.ReadLine()) != null)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(s);
                }
                Console.WriteLine("");
            }       
        Console.ReadKey();		
    }
}
