Read-Only Property (As Boolean )
BooleanValue = aFolderItem.Alias

Supported for all project types and targets.

Returns True if the item is an alias.


In most cases, a FolderItem is going to resolve the alias to point to the actual file. If you need the actual alias itself, then you should use FolderItem.TrueItem, FolderItem.TrueChild or GetTrueFolderItem.


Dim f As New FolderItem
If f.Alias Then
MsgBox("The folderitem is an alias.")
MsgBox("The folderitem is not an alias.")
End If
