Hi experts,

How can I delete a file in Delphi 3.0?

In Visual Basic, I would try it like this

Kill(filename).

How can this be done in Delphi language?

Yours sincerely

Christian

If you want in a different directory same thing as above but add the path to the file like thid...
DeleteFile('C:\windows\desktop\vik.txt');
that's only for deleting one file at a time..if you need to delete a whole directory then you need to use the TSHFileOpStruct that is declared in the ShellAPI...
