use_short_file_names Property

Whether the virtual filesystem supports short (8.3) filenames.


def get_use_short_file_names() -> bool: ...
def set_use_short_file_names(value: bool) -> None: ...

use_short_file_names = property(get_use_short_file_names, set_use_short_file_names)

Default Value



This property specifies whether the virtual filesystem should indicate to the system that it supports short filenames (also known as 8.3 filenames). Short filename support may be necessary for some older third-party applications to be able to access the virtual filesystem's files.

If this property is enabled, the application must be sure to return short filenames when handling the on_enumerate_directory and on_get_file_info events; and must be able to handle any event firing with a short filename rather than a normal one.

Please refer to the Short File Names topic for more information.

Note: This property cannot be changed when active is True, and cannot be changed within events.
