Hi...

var
Found: Integer;
SearchRec: TSearchRec;
DirCount: Integer;
begin
DirCount:=0;
Found := FindFirst('c:\pic\*.*', faAnyFile or faDirectory, SearchRec);
    while Found = 0 do
    begin
      if searchRec.Attr=faDirectory then
         Inc(DirCount);
      Found := FindNext(SearchRec);
    end;
    FindClose(SearchRec);
showmessage('Found '+IntToStr(DirCount));
end;

Perhaps you habe to decrease DirCount by 2, because there are always the 2 standard dirs . and ..

Hy mhieta,
I've done a test to try a way to answer you and found a "solution" if you like that pleace give me the points!!!!

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var SearchRec: TSearchRec;
    fDirPath: String;
    count: Integer;
begin
 fDirPath := Edit1.Text + '\*.*';
 count := 0;
 try
  if FindFirst(fDirPath, faAnyFile, SearchRec) = 0 then
   begin
    while (FindNext(SearchRec) = 0) do
     begin
      if (SearchRec.Attr = faDirectory) and (SearchRec.Name <> '..') then
        Inc(Count);
     end;
   end;
  Label1.Caption := IntToStr(Count);
  FindClose(SearchRec);
 except
  FindClose(SearchRec);
 end;
end;

Anyway, I hope you like....

Beto.

netbeto, your code works perfectly and also rene's code works fine. But netbeto's code is more flexible for many situations in future. I asked: "How i can count, how many subdirs i have in pic directory?." so rene is also right. So i give both of you...points of this question.

I did, because when I suggested your comment wasn't there (I was making the answer while connected, my is because that I didn't see your's suggest) then I asked for the points, but doesn't matter I just want to give a solution to my "Expertsn Friends".
