Hi,

I could not succeed in local network use by testing an existing directory. Is something wrong?

    String s="\\2019-Dell\\temp";
    FindFile f(s);
    Cout() << "resultado=" << f.IsFolder() << EOL;
    Cout() << "resultado=" << f.IsDirectory() << EOL;
    Cout() << "resultado=" << DirectoryExists(s) << EOL;


Thanks!

Hi,

Add + 2 slashes with function DirectoryExists work!

But, with the class FindFile not work! do you know why?

a while ago I posted a post where there was no feedback on problems involving (active) local network that do not display shared folders as per the link below. It must be related to this issue of the FindFile class not working, as the example I posted
https:// www.ultimatepp.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=11975&s tart=0&)

Thanks!

Hi,

I think FindFile is intended for looking up multiple files with desired patterns e.g. "\\\\2019-Dell\\temp\\*.*". If you just wish to make sure the share 'temp' on server '2019-Dell' exists, you should probably use DirectoryExists("\\\\2019-Dell\\temp").

Best regards,

Tom

ok, it works as a wildcard! Looking at the documentation, it also works with "*" or "? Interestingly, the way to search a folder on your machine, differs from searching on the local network.

In the documentation they could point out that so on the local network when searching for a folder (and multiple files) the developer must use wildcards, which is not necessary on the Local machine!

Tks!
