Count the files

Recommended Posts


Try this:

; Shows the filenames of all files in the current directory.
$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.*")  

; Check if the search was successful
If $search = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")
$i = 0

While 1
    $file = FileFindNextFile($search) 
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    $i = $i + 1 
MsgBox (0, "Files", "There are " &$i&" files and folders in the directory.")
; Close the search handle

check out _FileListToArray in file.au3

#include <File.au3>

_FileListToArray ( $sPath [, $sFilter [, $iFlag]] )

Optional: specifies wheather to return files folders or both

$iFlag=0(Default) Return both files and folders

$iFlag=1 Return files only <---great filter if you want files only

$iFlag=2 Return Folders only

The array returned is one-dimensional and is made up as follows:

$array[0] = Number of Files\Folders returned <------what you want

You can also use DirGetSize() function.

If you use the extended mode then the array returned from this function is a single dimension array containing the following elements:

$array[0] = Size

$array[1] = Files count

$array[2] = Dirs Count

#include <Array.au3>

$size = DirGetSize(@DesktopDir, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($size, 'Files')

If looking for all files shouldn't we use '*' instead of '*.*' ?

I think that using *.* is more “secure”, because when you use *.* it search for all files with any extansion.

Yes, but what if you have 'blah' with no extension, several programs create files like that... when installing iPod Linux you need the file called 'start' with no extension... I think that was hmsSurprise's point...
