Renaming all files in a directory

Given a directory from the user, I wish to open each file in this directory and append a user-defined string to the filename.

I know how to open the file and rename it, but I do not know how to go through and automatically rename all files in the directory using MFC. How do I do this?

Thanks,
-Dan

Hi Dan,
You can accomplish this by using following 2 functions
void CFilelistDlg::GetAllFolders(CString strFilepath)
{
if(strFilepath.Right(2)!= "\\\\")
   strFilepath = strFilepath + "\\*.*";
WIN32_FIND_DATA fd;
BOOL ret = 1;
HANDLE han = 0L;
han = FindFirstFile(strFilepath,&fd);
if( han != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
{          
   while(ret)
   {
     if(han != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
     {
     if((fd.cFileName != CString(".")) && (fd.cFileName != CString("..")))
     {
     if(fd.dwFileAttributes == FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY)
     {
     strFilepath = strFilepath.Left(strFilepath.ReverseFind('\\'));
     strFilepath = strFilepath + "\\" + fd.cFileName;
     m_strFolderList.Add(strFilepath);
     }
     }
    }
    ret = FindNextFile(han,&fd);
   }
}
if(han)
     FindClose(han);
     
}

void CFilelistDlg::GetFiles(CString strFilepath)
{
CString strTempPath;
char strSize[MAX_PATH];
DWORD sz;
strTempPath = strFilepath;
if(strFilepath.Right(2)!= "\\\\")
     strFilepath = strFilepath + "\\*.*";
WIN32_FIND_DATA fd;
BOOL ret = 1;
HANDLE han = 0L;
han = FindFirstFile(strFilepath,&fd);
if( han != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
{
while(ret)
{
   if(han != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
   {
     if((fd.cFileName != CString(".")) && (fd.cFileName != CString("..")))
     {
       if(fd.dwFileAttributes != FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY)
       {
              //Rename the files.
       }
     }
     ret = FindNextFile(han,&fd);
}
}
if(han)
FindClose(han);
}


Hope this helps.
