File or Folder?

Recommended Posts


Hey All,

Need some help here

$filesfolders = _FileListToArray()
;For this example lets say it returns these..
$filesfolders[1] = file.txt
$filesfolders[2] = file1.dll
$filesfolders[3] = file2.oscx
$filesfolders[4] = folder.pewpew
$filesfolders[5] = folder102_

The above files / folders are random example i have made up

Once i have all the files & folders list, how do you then determine what each element of the array contains, a file or folder?

Tried using some work arounds with functions like FileGetVersion, etc etc.. but it won't work.

Don't see any functions that can help and using a reg exp to determine whether if there is an "extention" is not going to cut it.

Anyone got any ideas?

If you use FileFindFirstFile and FileFindNextFile, then @extended is set to 1 when a folder is returned. This can make the whole thing very much quicker, at the cost of having to write a bit more code yourself to get the array. :mellow:


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area
