variable into wildcard

Recommended Posts



How can I combine variable into wildcards?

I tried:

$search = FileFindFirstFile("C:\temp\*getName_$var*")


$search = FileFindFirstFile("C:\temp\*getName_"&$var&"*")

Both, did not help

pls advice..

This worked for me, both files will be showed:

I created these 2 files in c:\temp (Test_getname_001.txt and Test_getname_002.txt) and used this code from help file:

$var = "00"
; Shows the filenames of all files in the current directory.
$search = FileFindFirstFile("C:\temp\*getName_" & $var & "*")

; Check if the search was successful
If $search = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")

While 1
    $file = FileFindNextFile($search)
    If @error Then ExitLoop

    MsgBox(4096, "File:", $file)

; Close the search handle
