Search For Filename With Wildcard?Jan 13, 2011
searching a directory for a file, and if it doesn't find that file to search again for a similar file and notify the user that a image does exist but for a different revision.
Dim photostr As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr2 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr3 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
Dim photostr4 As String = "R:itemphotosp_"
This code snippet is used in a program called SyteLine, so some of it may be unfamiliar, but its .net based. The item and revision are fed through from the form, so when the string gets built it might look something like this "R:itemphotosp_22554_B_01.jpg" with "22554" being the item, "B" being the revision, and "01" being the image number. So what I want is if it cannot find a file name with revision B in it, to search for a filename with any revision it it "R:itemphotosp_22554_*_01.jpg", if it finds one to display a message that a non-current photo exists, and if it can't find that, to display a message saying there is no photo.
