_FileListToArray error codes

Reported by: tatane Owned by:

Version: Severity: None

I'm using _FileListToArray function and I'm getting error code 4 when I don't have enough right access to the folder I want to list.

I modified this function to my need by adding "If _WinAPI_GetLastError() = 5 Then SetError(5, 0, 0)" in the code.

It's not essential but could the dev consider adding this error return ?

Thanks for your work.

If you get the error 4 return what happens if you check yourself in the code outside the UDF for the last API error as in this amended Help file example?

#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    ; List all the files and folders in the desktop directory using the default parameters.
    Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@DesktopDir, "*")
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Path was invalid.")
    If @error = 4 Then
        If _WinAPI_GetLastError() = 5 Then
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No access rights.")
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were found.")
    ; Display the results returned by _FileListToArray.
    _ArrayDisplay($aFileList, "$aFileList")
EndFunc   ;==>Example
