Remove Row numbers from _FileListToArrayRec

3 posts in this topic


I am trying to run a search for the file "xyz.exe" inside Temp folder. Below code works out all good except I am not able to get the initial "1|" removed from the display.

I would need the search result as "C:\Temp\xyz.exe" and not as "1.|C:\Temp\xyz.exe".



Func SearchFile()
    $FindFiles = _FileListToArrayRec("C:\Temp", "xyz.exe", 1, 1, 1, 2)
    $Copy = _ArrayToClip($FindFiles)
    MsgBox(0, "Heading", ClipGet())
EndFunc   ;==>SearchFile

Use the $iStart_Row parameter of _ArrayToClip to remove the first element of the array from being sent to the clipboard.


Edit: And it is not a row number, but the count of the found files.

Thank you Melba. It worked with the below...

    $Copy = _ArrayToClip($FindFiles, "", 1, 1, 6)
