Not sure if this is only available to files... Trying to create a folder locally (C: drive) and then copy the folder (and contents) to another folder on the network...
var foSource = new Folder(myPath);
This throws an error... any ideas?
What is your "strTarget"?
How is it build? It should be something like "C:\\Users\\User\\MyFolder";
IMPORTANT: backslash must be double( means: masked)
It may be because the Folder object does not have a copy() function.
I had a quick look at this and I believe that you will have to create your own recursive folder copy function. That will need to create a new folder, then copy each file into it. A recursive function will allow it to also create/copy sub-folders.
By the way, I normally use URI notation for all paths as it saves all that double backslash nonsense and it's how the File and Folder objects store the paths anyway.
you're absolutely right.
Only a file can be copied, but not a folder.
@funsekon: You have to create the (sub-)folder and copy the FILES.( file by file)
here's one way to do that:
var StartFolder = "C:\\temp"; // preselection for Windows Explorer
var locFolder = new Folder(StartFolder);
var oOldFolder = locFolder.selectDlg ("Folder");
if (oOldFolder != null)
oNewFolder = new Folder(oOldFolder + "\\NewFolder") ;
oFiles = oOldFolder.getFiles ("*.fm");
for (var i = 0; i < oFiles.length; i++)
NewFileName = oFiles.fsName.replace(oOldFolder.fsName,oNewFolder.fsName);
Thanks Klaus, this procedure works wonders. Yes, my target folder looks like: "C:\\Users\\User\\MyFolder";
Thanks @Ian Proudfoot for your suggestions and comments...
