here is a unit that shoes how to use TsearchRec to scan thourgh files and directories

unit Findfile;

interface

uses
  SysUtils, WinTypes, WinProcs, Messages, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
  Forms, Dialogs, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ListBox1: TListBox;
    Button1: TButton;
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Label1: TLabel;
    Edit2: TEdit;
    Label2: TLabel;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }

  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure FileFind(StartingDirectory, FileName: string; FilesFound: TStringList);

  procedure SearchTree;
  var
    SearchRec: TSearchRec;
    DosError: integer;
    dir: string;
  begin
    GetDir(0, dir);
    if dir[length(dir)] <> '\' then dir := dir + '\';
    DosError := FindFirst(FileName, 0, SearchRec);
    while DosError = 0 do begin
      try
        FilesFound.add(dir + SearchRec.name);
      except
        on EOutOfResources do begin
          ShowMessage('Too many files.');
          abort;

        end;
      end;
      DosError := FindNext(SearchRec);
    end;
    {Now that we have all the files we need, lets go to a subdirectory.}
    DosError := FindFirst('*.*', faDirectory, SearchRec);
    while DosError = 0 do begin
      {If there is one, go there and search.}
      if ((SearchRec.attr and faDirectory = faDirectory) and
        (SearchRec.name <> '.') and (SearchRec.name <> '..')) then begin
        ChDir(SearchRec.name);
        SearchTree; {Time for the recursion!}
        ChDir('..'); {Down one level.}

      end;
      DosError := FindNext(SearchRec); {Look for another subdirectory}
    end;
  end; {SearchTree}

begin
  FilesFound.clear;
  ChDir(StartingDirectory);
  SearchTree;
end; {FileFind}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  t: TStringList;
begin
  t := TStringList.create;
  FileFind(edit2.text, edit1.text, t);
  listbox1.items.assign(t);
  t.free;
end;

end.
