Read the file's properties

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I need to be able to test the files' properties of all the files in a directory. Looping into the directory to get the files is not an issue. But I can't find a function in Autoit that returns the file's properties (author, summary, ...).

Does anyone know which function can help me out of this maze?

Thanks a lot for your answer ...

Thx Hannes for your answer.

The script will mainly loop through flat files not through Excel files. However accessing the file properties using a VB script is an option I will look into if i can't find any more "native" function in Autoit; it'll be a good training for the 2012 Scripting Games :unsure: . Thanks for the information.

So I was wondering if anyone knows another method to access these file properties ...

Hannes was talking about converting the VB example to AutoIt code. But whatever, here is what you want already in AutoIt:
