Adding files to a file list array

Recommended Posts


I want to add two types of files to a file list array, *s.bmp and *h.bmp.

I tried the following, but it doesn't work.

$aFiles = _FileListToArray(".", "*s.bmp *h.bmp")

How can it be done?

As you have discovered, FileListToArray will only take one filter.

Two solutions:

- Use a more advanced UDF version of the function; there are lots on the forum.

- Run FileListToArray twice and then use ArrayConcatenate to join the arrays. But do not forget to remove the counter element from the beginning of the second 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

Dim $bfiles = 200
$bfiles[0] = 0
$aFiles = _FileListToArray(".", "*")

$0 = 1
for $0 = 1 to $aFiles[0]
if stringinstr("*s.bmp " & "*h.bmp",$aFiles[$0]) then
    $bfiles[0] = $bfiles[0] + 1
    $bfiles[$bfiles[0]] = $aFiles[$0]

somethin like that maybe. then u can use a little loop like this to return the files.

$x = 1

while $x <= $bfiles[0]


$x = $x + 1
