FileFindFirstFile and directories

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to use this to find a directory with a wildcard. If i use "*.*" i get only files. if i use "*" i get files and directories. how can i get just directories?

bobbintb,

You need to use "*" and check if the returned value is a folder. The way to do this differs between 3.3.0.0 and the Betas:

; 3.3.0.0
$sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
If @error Then ExitLoop ; End of folder
; Check if folder
If StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($sCurrentPath & $sName), "D") And ($sName <> "." Or $sName <> "..") Then $fFolder = 1

; Betas
$sName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
; Check for end of folder
If @error Then ExitLoop
; Check for subfolder - @extended set in 3.3.1.1 +
$fFolder = @extended

These snippets will set the $fFolder flag to 1 for a folder, 0 for a file. Over to you to deal with the next part!

bobbintb,

$fFolder is a variable that you need to declare in your script. Sorry, I thought that would be clear from the context. :)

Of course, you can write your script so that you do not need a variable and just test @Extended or the longer If statement directly.
