Number of specific files in a folder

Recommended Posts

This should get you started - FileFindFirstFile

Yeah I have seen this...Altered it was trying couldn't achieve what I wanted... Here is what I tried:

; Shows the filenames of all files in the current directory.
$location = ("D:Temppdfs")
$search = FileFindFirstFile($location & "*.pdf")  

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

While 1
    $file = DirGetSize($search)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    Msgbox(0, "", $file[1])

; Close the search handle

Didn't give me any results..

$iFiles = _NumFiles(@ScriptDir,"*.pdf",1)
Func _NumFiles($sPath, $sFilter, $iFlag)
$FileList = _FileListToArray($sPath, $sFilter, $iFlag)
If @Error=1 Then
    MsgBox (0,"","No Folders Found.")
If @Error=4 Then
    MsgBox (0,"","No Files Found.")
Return $FileList[0]

Hey John...

I tried your code...It endup giving me:

D:TempFiles.au3 (31) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:

$FileList = _FileListToArray($sPath, $sFilter, $iPath)

$FileList = _FileListToArray($sPath, $sFilter, ^ ERROR

I think there is something missing which I am not sure. I thought getting number of files in a folder is easy and straight forward. Looks like it is not. Can you please help me out!

Is it possible to specify multiple extensions - so that it can calculate both extension and give me the number of files in the folder?

say for example - I have 10 pdf files and 20 jpg files. I would like to get the number of files as 30.

Awaiting your response!

Look at the RecFileListToArray UDF in my sig - it allows you to search for multiple extensions. :)
