Hi there, when I use the send the LB_DIR message to a list box I can populate it with a directory listing. Except it shows all short names (8.3 filenames) Is there anyway around this? I need to fill a list box with all the directories (But not subdirectories) within a directory. These should be shown with long filenames too. Anyhelp? Thanks, Ben
You can enumerate the directories with FindNextFile and add each dir to your list. Something like this:
FindData WIN32_FIND_DATA <> hSearch dd ? SearchDir "C:\windows\*.*",0 ;here's your search directory, ;don't forget the *.* invoke FindFirstFile, ADDR SearchDir, ADDR FindData .IF eax==INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE ;failed .ENDIF mov hSearch, eax .WHILE TRUE mov eax, FindData.dwFileAttributes .IF (eax & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY)==0 .CONTINUE ;no dir, next file .ENDIF mov ecx, FindData.cFileName invoke SendMessage, hListBox, LB_ADDSTRING, NULL, ecx ;(hListBox is your listbox handle) invoke FindNextFile, hSearch, ADDR FindData .IF eax==ERROR_NO_MORE_FILES jmp @enum_done .ENDIF .ENDW @enum_done: invoke FindClose, hSearch(I haven't tried the code but I guess it should work) Thomas
Thanks, you had some errors, but you got the idea down. Here's what I boiled that down to, for any others interested in listing long filenames in a listbox. Take note there is an if aroung the SendMessage which checks for a period in the first character of the directory that's because I didn't want the move up directories to be shown ("." and ".."). Take that away if you want all the directories shown. Hmmm. This won't show the code properly. So either you've got to edit it yourself or one of the moderators should come a long and tell me why this won't show the code right? (It's in the code brackets!) - Good Luck!
Sorry about the tabs but I didn't have time to remove them. See ya, Ben This message was edited by cyberben, on 1/28/2001 12:44:38 PM
