First File in Directory

4 posts in this topic

hey again, sorry about this question, but what can I used to find the file name of the FIRST file (in order of listing, likely alphabetized)?

I'm pretty sure theres a UDF for this, if not already a function, my brain just isint working today..

my scenario is that my program makes a new .ECJ file every day, and each file is named by the date such as (20071010) andtomorrow (20071011) and so forth, and I need to locate the earliest file...

any ways to work around this? it doesnt necessarily be what I asked, maybe something like reading the date created ECT....

Thanks, Method Zero

_FileListToArray+_ArraySort?


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
