I got a question about your UDF, is it possible to edit the specified details and save them afterwards? It would be awsome for use when you want to edit your song information or anything like that :)

I believe this only "Reads" the extended properties, in order to change the ID3 data you'd have to write to that data block in the file.

Thanks, great UDF... but...

There is a problem to get the “Author” attribute...

$NotepadAuthor = _GetExtProperty(@SystemDir & "\Notepad.exe", 9)

MsgBox(0, "", $NotepadAuthor)

We get always 0

Any ideas on how to fix it?

notepad.exe doesn't have an author, which is why you get 0.

Check its actual properties.

notepad.exe doesn't have an author, which is why you get 0.

It is onle example, this not work on all files, and the Company also return 0 - I tryed it on my compiled script, where the Company name is set, and i get always 0 - i also tryed using -1 param (to get array), and returns only first 9 elements (almoust in all files, exept the music files).

So my question is, it is possible to get the “Company name”, or the “Author” of the program, or even the “Rights Reserved” (somthing like this :whistle: )?

Thanks.

This definitely works for me.

Dim $arrHeaders[14]

$objShell = ObjCreate ("Shell.Application")
$objFolder = $objShell.Namespace ("C:\TEMP")
$objFSO = ObjCreate("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

For $i = 0 to 13
    $arrHeaders[$i] = $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolder.Items, $i)
Next

For $strFileName in $objFolder.Items()
    For $i = 0 to 13
        If $i <> 9 then
            consolewrite ($arrHeaders[$i] & ": " & $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($strFileName, $i) & @CR)
        EndIf
    Next
    ConsoleWrite (@CR)
Next
    
; More Attributes !!

Dim $filesys, $demofile, $createdate 
$filesys = ObjCreate("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
$demofile = $filesys.GetFile("C:\Temp\rdc9_browser.exe") ; Change to your file here !!

ConsoleWrite ("More Attributes !!"&@CR)
;consolewrite ($demofile.Atributes&@CR)
consolewrite ("DateCreated "&$demofile.DateCreated&@CR)
consolewrite ("DateLastAccessed "&$demofile.DateLastAccessed&@CR)
consolewrite ("DateLastModified "&$demofile.DateLastModified&@CR)
consolewrite ("Drive "&$demofile.Drive&@CR)
consolewrite ("Name "&$demofile.Name&@CR)
consolewrite ("ParentFolder "&$demofile.ParentFolder&@CR)
consolewrite ("Path "&$demofile.Path&@CR)
consolewrite ("ShortName "&$demofile.ShortName&@CR)
consolewrite ("ShortPath "&$demofile.ShortPath&@CR)
consolewrite ("Size "&$demofile.Size& " Bytes"&@CR)
consolewrite ("Type "&$demofile.Type&@CR)
ConsoleWrite (@CR)

Enjoy !!

Thank you, but in these returned values there no info about company name, or author of file, or the “Rights Reserved” info. Edited by MsCreatoR

I find it!

If someone want to get the “Company name”, or the “Author” of the program, or the “Rights Reserved”, then you can use FileGetVersion() with second parametr set :whistle:

I get this Error.

Line 60

$oFile = $oDir.Parsename($sFile)

Error: The Requested action with this object has Failed

Anyone know why?

Edit:

I realized you need the full path to your song, @ScriptDir does the trick

I came across this while building an app for my MP3 files. When I tried using the # values for Artist and Title, neither returned what it was "supposed" to. I found that part of the reason was because I had an external app, called FolderSize, installed. FolderSize adds a column to explorer called "FolderSize" which displays the size of both files and folders...really useful sometimes :)

Anyway, I thought that was the whole story, and I right clicked on the top of the listview and selected "more". This gave me the full list of the possible fields in the same order as the UDF returned them. So I went on to investigate, and long story short, came up with the following:

The max value for a few of the music files on my PC was 44 (45th array item). Using this UDF to read one of the files returned the following:

For $I=40 to 44
 ConsoleWrite($I & ": " & _GetExtProperty($PATH,$I) )
Next

Wrote this into the console:

40: Description
41: File Version
42: Product Name
43: Product Version
44: Keywords

Also, the value I used for artist was 20, and the title was 14

I may set it up to scan all of my HDDs for another max but that'd take a while...3097 files took me roughly 4.5 minutes scanning from $I=40 to 60.

Anyway...any thoughts, comments, etc?

Anyway, I got my script working thanks to this UDF =) +Pretend Rep
