Drag & Drop-Folder details!

When a user drags a folder icon from an explorer/my computer window to a particular control in the application, how can we get the list of files in that particular folder, and how can we get other details about that folder, like creation date, etc.?

Hi!

Here's a file for you over hte net:

Description: Get a file's creation, last access, and last write times a second way (2K)

To check the file creation date/time, you could also use the FileDateTime(filepath) function to retrieve the data.

That's it!
