Searching for a folder

Recommended Posts

Moist

Hello guys,

I'm working on a script that needs to search for a specific folder using a string. Basically, all the folders are numbered, but they have some string in front of that number. How can I search for a folder and return its full name or full path.

There are some ways, you can retrieve all folders to array and stringinstr it, or go with FileFindFirstFile

FileExists only returns 0 and 1. I know the folder exists, but I only part of its string. I am using this script with another software and have the string , e.g., "123" and the folders are named "100_nice", "101_cool", ... "123_great", with no number being repeated. How do I get the full path to the "123_great"?

Use wildcard with filefindfirstfile

How are you finding these files yourself :o ? 

 

WIndows search ?

What exactly does Filefindfirstfile do? Will it search in the first file of a directory? How exactly can I have the filename and path.

 

$hSearch = FileFindFirstFile("C:\Directory\123*")

$sFileName = ""

$sFileName = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)

Is this enough ?
