_GetAppropriatePath()

Recommended Posts

Yashied

A simple function which returns the first matching path for a specified wildcard, if exists. UNC paths are not supported. The name of the drive must be specified obviously.

 

ConsoleWrite(_GetAppropriatePath('C:\Program*\AutoIt*\AutoIt*.exe') & @CR)
ConsoleWrite(_GetAppropriatePath('C:\*\System??\user??.dll') & @CR)
ConsoleWrite(_GetAppropriatePath('C:\???????\explorer.exe') & @CR)
ConsoleWrite(_GetAppropriatePath('C:\*\Fon*\') & @CR)

Func _GetAppropriatePath($sPath, $iLevel = 0)

    Local $hSearch, $tPath, $File, $Item, $Path, $Ret, $Dir = '', $Suf = '', $Result = ''

    $tPath = DllStructCreate('wchar[1024]')
    $Ret = DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'dword', 'GetFullPathNameW', 'wstr', $sPath, 'dword', 1024, 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($tPath), 'ptr', 0)
    If (@error) Or (Not $Ret[0]) Then
        Return ''
    EndIf
    $sPath = DllStructGetData($tPath, 1)
    If StringRight($sPath, 1) = '\' Then
        $Dir = '\'
    EndIf
    $Item = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($sPath, '\\\Z', ''), '\')
    Select
        Case $iLevel + 1 = $Item[0]
            If FileExists($sPath) Then
                Return $sPath
            Else
                Return ''
            EndIf
        Case $iLevel + 1 > $Item[0]
            Return ''
    EndSelect
    For $i = 1 To $iLevel + 1
        $Result &= $Item[$i] & '\'
    Next
    $Result = StringRegExpReplace($Result, '\\\Z', '')
    If Not FileExists($Result) Then
        Return ''
    EndIf
    $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($Result & '\*')
    If $hSearch = -1 Then
        Return ''
    EndIf
    For $i = $iLevel + 3 To $Item[0]
        $Suf &= '\' & $Item[$i]
    Next
    While 1
        $File = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
        If @error Then
            $Result = ''
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
        If (Not @extended) And ($Dir) And ($iLevel + 2 = $Item[0]) Then
            ContinueLoop
        EndIf
        $Ret = DllCall('shlwapi.dll', 'int', 'PathMatchSpecW', 'wstr', $File, 'wstr', $Item[$iLevel + 2])
        If (Not @error) And ($Ret[0]) Then
            $Path = _GetAppropriatePath($Result & '\' & $File & $Suf & $Dir, $iLevel + 1)
            If $Path Then
                $Result = $Path
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
        EndIf
    WEnd
    FileClose($hSearch)
    Return $Result
EndFunc   ;==>_GetAppropriatePath
