Declaration

public void Extract(
    string path
)

Parameters

Name Type Description

A string that is the path to the directory to which the files are extracted.

If the archive contains directories, the directory structure will be recreated in the specified 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.

using DevExpress.Compression;
        public void UnzipArchive() {
            string pathToZipArchive = "Documents\\Example.zip";
            string pathToExtract = "Documents\\!Extracted";
            using (ZipArchive archive = ZipArchive.Read(pathToZipArchive)) {
                foreach (ZipItem item in archive) {
                    item.Extract(pathToExtract);
                }
            }
        }
