ZipArchive.Extract() Method

Extract all archive items as files into the current directory.

Namespace: DevExpress.Compression

Assembly: DevExpress.Docs.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Document.Processor


public void Extract()


If the archive contains directories, the directory structure will be recreated in the current directory, and the current directory is considered to be the root directory. The ZipItem.Name property value becomes the file name of the extracted file.

This example illustrates how to load the zip file and extract it to the specified directory. If the target directory is not specified, the current directory is the target.

            string pathToExtract = "Documents\\!Extracted";
            using (ZipArchive archive = ZipArchive.Read(pathToZipArchive)) {
