Small Folder Explorer

Recommended Posts


Hello Everyone, I am new to this forum and Autoit.

I am looking to build a small Folder Explorer. Following are the details.

1/ Get all the folders from C:MYFOLDER.into the listbox.

2/ If I double click "Folder 1" which will be the folder inside "MYFolder", the script should be able to clear the existing listbox and add folders inside "Folder 1". It should also give a link or button to go back to "MYFolder".

3/ On double clicking "Folder 1" the script should copy all the files in "Folder 1" to some place lets say D:FILES

My question, is this possible through Autoit ? If yes how ?

Many thanks John. I have managed to get all folders inside my folder to the Listbox using the below code. Now I am stuck .. How do I get onClick event from Listbox ? and using this event how can I further explore sub folders using the same listbox and go back to previous folder ? Appreciate your support and hint on this. Thanks.

Dear Melba23,

My apologies for posting it into wrong section. Will be careful next time :)

#include <File.au3>
#include <GuiListBox.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("NCR Corporation", 500, 400,-1,-1,$DS_CONTEXTHELP,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
$hListBox = _GUICtrlListBox_Create($hGUI, "", 0, 0, 500, 400)
Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray("C:MYFOLDER")
For $i = 1 To UBound($aFileList) - 1
_GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox, $aFileList[$i])
