I would like a function that will return all these without multiple calls to the file. I was hopeing for an API function that would return all these. I am using the filelist control VB5 and will change to a list list view if I can get all the information in one call per filename. Currently I used the dir command then the filedate filesize, but this takes a long time on network drives. What does window explorer use? It seems to be really fast.
