Select A Directory And Move Files From The Directory

Apr 8, 2011

I am going to need to create a windows form for work that we can connect to a database table, select a directory and move files from the directory that are in the table and move to another folder. The directory will have sub directories that I need to search for the file name and move. I would like to have the table hold the file name (or path) and move all files that are in the database. There might be 20 files or 1000. Depends on the client we are processing for.

Reconcile A List Of Files And A Directory With Subfolders/files To Find Changes?

Jun 3, 2010

I have a SQL Server table with a list of files (path + filename), and a folder with multiple layers and files in each layer. I'm looking for a way to reconcile the two without having to process the list twice. Currently, I'm doing this:

For Each f as FileInfo In FileListFromDatabase
If f.Exists is False, mark it as deleted in the database


Is there a better way to do this? I'd like to avoid converting all the matching files (of which most will be) to FileInfo objects twice. Since I'm a T-SQL developer first, I'm picturing something like an OUTER JOIN of the two lists where they don't match. Something LINQ-ish?

Use Icompare To Sort A Structure Of Files By Date?

Feb 18, 2010

I'm using Visual Studio .Net 2008 on Vista. The goal of my program is to watch a directory, get file information, then sort them by thier date, and produce a updated text file. I can't seem to get my code to generate a list of files sorted by date. The code does produce a general list of files, however presently ordered in the directory. I also tried an alternate way of sorting the files by date by creating a string, removing the date using substring, then comparing the file dates using datetime.parse but it produces a exception error.[code]...

.net - Sort Datatable / Dataview / Gridview Of Files Based On File Modified Date

Aug 2, 2010

I have a page which lists all the files in a particular folder (all PDFs), using a data-table and gridview. I'm currently sorting this table by the filename (by using a dataview), which isn't that helpful, and I want the gridview of files sorted by the file created or file modified date (as recorded in Windows). If that's not possible, a second option would be to extract the date from the file name string (no problem doing that), and sort the dataview/datatable or gridview based on that.

Get Files In A Directory?

Sep 17, 2009

I am trying to get the files in a directory and display them in a list box. I have that part working, but I would only like to show the files that are NOT hidden. I am currently using this:

Dim atts As FileAttribute = CheckDirectory.Attributes
If (atts And FileAttribute.Hidden) = FileAttribute.Hidden Then...
this is part of a for each loop.

But is there a way to only return the files that are not hidden, instead of having to check if they are?

I also need this to see how many files are in each directory so I don't have to count each file in each directory within the current folder. If I use the CheckDirectory.GetFiles().count, it counts the hidden files to.. A for each loop is just too slow..

We have a directory of thousands of pdf files that need printing.  How can I have a vb app print them one after another until they are all printed.  All it needs to do is the equivalent of right click on the pdf and click print.  I don't need to open or read the file and I don't need to monitor the printing process.  Just go through one by one and say print to each file.  I can loop through files but what would the commands be to tell it to print them?

Searching For Files In A Directory?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm creating an app that has check boxes that will define a search. The files all reside in one folder. I've looked at some tutorials that use and I can get this to work. But what I think i want to use is: io.path.getfilename because I don't need the path (though I'm about ready to make an exception).

When should I use io.path.getfilename and can I use that method to do a search? I can't figure that out. I would think it would react as does but I am incorrect.....

Here is the code. Its short becasue I'm just figuring things out first:

Public Class Form1
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim afiles() As String


The commented out line is what I can't get to work and I'm thinking that is what I need to work.
