File deletion problem...

I use this kind of code:

  IF (Key = VK_DELETE) And Assigned(DirView1.Selected) And Not DirView1.isEditing Then
  begin
  DirView1.DeleteSelectedFiles(Not(ssShift in Shift));
  end;

This code is working fine. But now i don't know why it raises exception EInOutError with message 'File not Found'. And leaves file in the DirView list.
If i delete with this code directory then it works fine.

Try doing this instead:

IF (Key = VK_DELETE) And Assigned(DirView1.Selected) And Not DirView1.isEditing Then
  begin
    TRY
      DirView1.DeleteSelectedFiles(Not(ssShift in Shift));
    EXCEPT

    END;
    DirView1.Refresh;
  end;

It might not solve your 'File not found' problem but it will stop the code reporting nasty errors. To get around the problem of 'File Not Found' then check the name and path of the file(s) you are trying to delete. This could be a missing '\' character or a sub-path not being added correctly. Just add a ShowMessage before the delete and see what it's doing

maybe file has a "read only attribute"

Thanks! The Neil,

I use Filemanager toolset For Delphi 4. So i see message when i delete files or directories.
You are right that it will stop the code reporting nasty errors.
