I need a way to create a list (filelistbox?) of all filenames (full path, ex:'c:\windows\temp\readme.txt') that compare a given mask (with wildchars).  Also all the files (full path) in any subdirectory that compare that same given mask.  Example: 'c:\*.*' has to give a list off all the files on drive C with there full path.  Included all the hidden, system, ... files.  I need the lists to create correct backups.  I hope you understand what I mean (and need).

Thanks in advance.

Dirk.

PS sorry for my poor English.

Try this:


procedure GetFiles(DirStr: string; filelist: TStrings);
var DirInfo: TSearchRec;
    r : Integer;
    pattern: String;
begin
  pattern := ExtractFileName(DirStr);
  if Pos('*', pattern) > 0 then
    DirStr := ExtractFilePath(DirStr)
  else
    pattern := '*.*';
  if DirStr[Length(DirStr)] <> '\' then
    DirStr := DirStr + '\';
  if SetCurrentDir((DirStr)) then
  begin
    r := FindFirst(pattern, FaAnyfile, DirInfo);
    while r = 0 do
    begin
      if (DirInfo.Attr and faDirectory) = 0 then
        filelist.Add(DirStr + DirInfo.Name);
      r := FindNext(DirInfo);
    end;
    FindClose(DirInfo);
    r := FindFirst('*.*', FaAnyfile, DirInfo);
    while r = 0 do
    begin
      if (DirInfo.Attr and faDirectory) <> 0 then
        if (DirInfo.Name <> '.') and (DirInfo.Name <> '..') then
          GetFiles(DirStr + DirInfo.Name + '\' + pattern, filelist);
      r := FindNext(DirInfo);
    end;
    FindClose(DirInfo);
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ListBox1.Items.BeginUpdate;
  GetFiles('c:\*.pas', ListBox1.Items);
  ListBox1.Items.EndUpdate;
end;

You could try something like this:

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  Count : Integer;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure GetAllFiles(S : string);
var
  Search : TSearchRec;
  FPath, FName : string;
begin
  FName := ExtractFileName(S);
  FPath := ExtractFilePath(S);

  if FindFirst(S, $23, Search) = 0 then
  begin
    repeat
      Form1.ListBox1.Items.Add(FPath + Search.Name);
      Inc(Count);
    until
      FindNext(Search) <> 0;
  end;

  if FindFirst(FPath + '*.*', faDirectory, Search) = 0 then
  begin
    repeat
      if ((Search.Attr and faDirectory) = faDirectory) and
         (Search.name[1] <> '.') then
      begin
        GetAllFiles(FPath + Search.Name + '\' + FName);
      end;
    until
      FindNext(Search) <> 0;
    FindClose(Search);
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Dir, WildCard : string;
begin
  Screen.Cursor := crHourGlass;
  Count := 0;
  ListBox1.Items.Clear;
  Dir := Copy(Edit1.Text, 0, Length(Edit1.Text) - 3);
  WildCard := Copy(Edit1.Text, Length(Edit1.Text) - 2, 3);
  GetAllFiles(Dir + WildCard);
  if Count = 0 then
    ShowMessage('No Files Found.');
  Screen.Cursor := crDefault;
end;

Cheers,

Alan
