Retrieve a WinRT defined path on the local file system.


const char * SDL_WinRTGetFSPathUTF8(SDL_WinRT_Path pathType);

Function Parameters

pathType the type of path to retrieve, one of SDL_WinRT_Path

Return Value

Returns a UTF-8 string (8-bit, multi-byte) containing the path, or NULL if the path is not available for any reason; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


Not all paths are available on all versions of Windows. This is especially true on Windows Phone. Check the documentation for the given SDL_WinRT_Path for more information on which path types are supported where.

Documentation on most app-specific path types on WinRT can be found on MSDN, at the URL:


This function is available since SDL 2.0.3.
