Check if a file is read only

The IsReadOnly property returns if a file is read only. The following code snippet returns true if a file is read only.

Imports System.IO

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        Dim fileName As String = "C:\Temp\MaheshTXFI.txt"

        Dim fi As New IO.FileInfo(fileName)

        Dim exists As Boolean = fi.Exists

        ' File ReadOnly ?

        Dim IsReadOnly As Boolean = fi.IsReadOnly

        Console.WriteLine("Is ReadOnly: {0}", IsReadOnly)

        Console.ReadLine()

    End Sub

End Module

Output:
