a sample

procedure FindFile(PathFileName : string; IncludeSubDirs : Boolean; const ResultList : TStrings);
var
 srec : TSearchRec;
 Path, FileName : String;
begin
  If Assigned(ResultList) then
  begin
    Path := ExtractFilePath(PathFileName);
    FileName := ExtractFileName(PathFileName);
    // CurrentDirectory
    if findfirst(PathFileName,faanyfile,srec) = 0 then
    begin
      repeat
        If Not(srec.attr and fadirectory > 0) then
        begin
          //file Found->add to list
          ResultList.Add(Path+SRec.Name);
        end;
      Until findnext(srec) <> 0;
    end;
    FindClose(SRec);
    { SubDirectories }
    If IncludeSubDirs then
    begin
      if FindFirst(Path+'*.*',FaAnyFile,Srec) = 0 then
      begin
        repeat
          // StartRecursion
          if not(Srec.Name[1] = '.') and (srec.attr and fadirectory > 0)then
            FindFile(Path + Srec.Name + '\' + FileName,IncludeSubDirs, ResultList)
        Until findnext(srec) <> 0;
      end;
      FindClose(SRec);
    end;
  end
  else raise Exception.Create('No ResultList Given');
end;

//edit2 contains the starting directory
//edit1 contains a filemask (*.pas for example)
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if not DirectoryExists(Edit2.text) then
    raise Exception.Create('Invalid Directory');
  //check Backslash
  If Edit2.text[Length(Edit2.text)] <> '\' then
    Edit2.text := Edit2.text + '\';

  FindFile(Edit2.Text+Edit1.Text,True,ListBox1.Items);

end;

Hi,

Just use a recursive function using FindFirst, FindNext, and FindClose.
