_FileListToArray not picking up every file?


Recommended Posts


$path = FileSelectFolder($message, "C:\Program Files (x86)\test")
$FileList = _FileListToArray($path)
$var = UBound($FileList)
msgbox(1, "test", $var)

When I right click the file, it says there are 1245 folders. Though, $var reports 989, and when I print the array it is skipping a bunch of files.

Am I overlooking something here?

_FileListToArray is not recursive - that means it does not search inside folders. So any files and folders within folders are not returned. This might explain the difference in the numbers that you are seeing as the value returned by right-clicking does look inside all subfolders. ;)

If you want to search within the folder tree, you could try the _RecFileListToArray UDF in my sig. :graduated:
