Getfiles - Find Most Recent File In Directory?

Feb 20, 2012

I'm trying to load the most recent file from a directory, but my following code doesn't work. Am i getting something obvious terribly wrong?!

Dim myFile = Directory.GetFiles("C:UsersJoeDesktopXML Logs").OrderByDescending(Function(f) f.LastWriteTime).First()

I get two error messages:

Data type(s) of the type parameter(s) in extension method 'Public Function OrderByDescending(Of TKey)(keySelector As System.Func(Of String, TKey)) As System.Linq.IOrderedEnumerable(Of String)' defined in 'System.Linq.Enumerable' cannot be inferred from these arguments. Specifying the data type(s) explicitly might correct this error.


'LastWriteTime' is not a member of 'String'.

.net - Get File Modified Date

Sep 8, 2010

I have a number of files in a folder, I need to get the last modified date. So I used FDate = IO.File.GetLastWriteTime(FName) Works fine with some files, but on others, I get a date of 1/1/1601. But when I check the files in Windows Explorer, all the dates look normal (recent). So, I'm gessing there are multiple files dates stored in the file system, and the ones dotnet is seeing are not the ones windows is seeing. How can I get exactly the date which appears as "date modified" in a file explorer window? I tried some vb6 api stuff but that doesn't seem to work in dotnet.

Get Modified Date Variable In SSIS?

Mar 7, 2011

I am trying to pull the modified date of one file in a folder through a SSIS script. I tried doing this through the system.IO namespace as it contains the GetFileName method. This isn't working & I was wondering if there was a name space that contained the modified date method for a file if I specified the path to the filename. I am looking to return the modified date variable in whichever way this may be possible.

Retrieving File Modified Date?

Apr 5, 2009

I'm using 2003 Standard Edition, and I'm trying to retrieve the file modified date. I've created a System.IO.FileInfo object, and have collected info from the three methods: CreationTime, LastAccessTime, and LastWriteTime, but they aren't giving me the same data as XP Windows Explorer is.In Explorer, there is a Date Modified field (currently reading 2008 on the file in question), but using the FileInfo methods they return 2007, 2009, 2009.Is there another IO object I can use to get this 'modified' date?

File Creation/modified Date/times?

Mar 16, 2010

I created a background thread that constantly scans a specified folder for any .xls files that are created or modified. These files come from a vba macro in outlook that will automatically save the attachments of the mails in the this folder. This will update the modified date/time, or at least it seems to.

For Each fi In aryFi
fidate = System.IO.File.GetLastWriteTime(path & fi.ToString)
fidate1 = System.IO.File.GetCreationTime(path & fi.ToString)


Everytime I check to the code, the fidate and fidate1 variables are indeed the correct dates/times of the file it's currently checking. It almost never gets inside the elseif block at runtime though.

.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.

Find The Closest Valid Date To One Given As An Invalid Date String?

Aug 18, 2010

So there's this accounting package at my client that spits out text-based reports with invalid dates, like February 31st or September 31st.The reports are formatted with spaces and mono-spaced fonts. The data that gets parsed out are fed into a more formal local SSRS report, and that's about all you need to know.

What I am interested in fixing is the situation where a date is invalid and can't be converted into a DateTime struct. The date format from the report is "MMM-dd-yy" (e.g. "Feb-30-10"). The date strings need to be fixed before being shown in the formal report. I've seen this done two ways in my time as a developer, and I want to come up with a cleverer way of doing it (if there isn't a built-in way I don't know about).The first bad method (I can't believe I'm even showing you!):

Dim month As Integer = <Parse out the month from the bad date string>
Dim day As Integer = <Parse out the day from the bad date string>
Dim year As Integer = <Parse out the year from the bad date string>
Dim validDate As DateTime

Find ALL Methods Of Getting Current Date/time In .net?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a 500K+ lines app, written by 10+ different devs over the past 5 years. Many times it gets the system time and/or date and relies on it.Now I have to re-run real cases thru the program for regression testing purposes, and it screws up cases where the date/time matter. My fix is easy, just replace all the areas in the program that get current date/time with a sub that gets the current date/time, UNLESS I'm testing, in which case it will return the date/time of the original run. I have tried searching the sourcecode for the obvious 'current date/time' functions:


However, if I miss one, I LOSE.list more ways to get the current time, that might be hidden in the source code, that I can search for? Note: It's pretty clear none of the 3rd party libs in this system are returning date, well, one is, but I've caught it.
