Check wheter it's file or folder

5 posts in this topic

Hi

My script receives a paramter (path to file or folder) per commandline. I have to check whether it's a file or folder.

How I can realize this?

Regards,

search for "." with stringinstr. all files have an extention. folders dont.

this will not work of course if the folder name has "." in it, but most extentions are also 3 characters so you could add some logic for that.

you can get pretty specific with minimal problems with this method.

Use FileGetAttrib ( "filename" )

R" = READONLY

"A" = ARCHIVE

"S" = SYSTEM

"H" = HIDDEN

"N" = NORMAL

"D" = DIRECTORY

"O" = OFFLINE

"C" = COMPRESSED (NTFS compression, not ZIP compression)

"T" = TEMPORARY

Look at HelpFile...

Wrong on both counts. "C:\Path\To\File" is a perfectly valid file name and "C:\Path\To\Directory.Suffix" is a perfectly valid directory name.
