EDIT:

sorry if found what i needed i beleive that i can use the FileFindFirstFile("filename") function as documented in the documentation, sorry if i have wasted your time.

here is the code you can use to loop through files in the curerent working directory if anyone wants it

$File_List = FileFindFirstFile("*.*")
While 1
    $Current_File = FileFindNextFile($File_List)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "FILE", $Current_File); Replace this to save the list to a file or add each item to a list box etc.
WEnd
FileClose($File_List)

Hi i am making a program that requires me to be able to get a list of all files in the current working directory.

I know how to get the current working directory but i cant for the life of me find any information on how i would retreive a list of all files and folders inside that directory, then put it into an array, and then display it in a list box. I know how list boxes work but i need to get the file list to put in the list box.

A treeview with a list of all folders and files on the drive selected would also be appropriate if not better.

hope you can help

Thanks FaT3oYCG

Interpreters have great power!Although they live in the shadow of compiled programming languages an interpreter can do anything that a compiled language can do, you just have to code it right.

Use Function _FileListToArray. This will list you files and folders into an array to work with.
