Delete Only specific Cookies from Cookie Folder vb6

Hello Experts

I am trying to delete only specific cookies in my cookie folder

for example if i only want to delete   (   google.co[1].txt   ) in the cookie folder

Here is some more in my cookie folder

D:\Documents and Settings\Win2000\Cookies\win2000@www.cnn[1].txt
D:\Documents and Settings\Win2000\Cookies\win2000@google.co[1].txt
D:\Documents and Settings\Win2000\Cookies\win2000@experts-exchange[1].txt

I am using code in vb6

to display the cookies  folder in a listview1 box  i use the code.
'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()

   ListView1.ListItems.Clear
   
   Set FD = fso.GetFolder(Cookies)
    Set FLS = FD.Files
   
    For Each F In FLS
    ListView1.ListItems.Add , , "Item " & F.path  ' F.path contains the full path and name of cookie
    Next

End Sub
'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
and to select a  cookie in listview1  i am using
'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Command2_Click()

Dim intindex
 With ListView1
   For intindex = .ListItems.Count To 1 Step -1
      If .ListItems(intindex).Checked Then
          .ListItems.Remove intindex
      End If
   Next
 End With

End Sub

in the above code Command2_Click() how can i insert some code
to delete the actual cookie file selected  , for example if  ( google.co[1].txt  )  
is selected then i want to delete this cookie from the cookie folder

thanks experts

If you use the Microsoft Scripting runtime, you can use

Dim fs As New FileSystemObject
fs.DeleteFile FileName

Where FileName is the name of the file to delete.

Give this a try.  Don't know if it's 100% accurate, though, so you'll have to test.

Dim cookie_name as String

...

      If .ListItems(intindex).Checked Then
          cookie_name = .ItemData(intindex)
          fso.DeleteFile cookie_name
          .ListItems.Remove intindex
      End If

Hmmm... looks like you add the word "Item " to the front of the cookie path/name.  So, you'll have to parse that out.

          cookie_name = .ItemData(intindex)
          cookie_name = Replace(cookie_name,"Item ","")
          fso.DeleteFile cookie_name
          .ListItems.Remove intindex

Hello Experts

The command   " fso.DeleteFile cookie_name "
does not allow deleteing of the index.dat file in the cookie folder ,
 

how can i have the listview1 box stop from showing the line in listvew so it cant be checked
i would need to omit the listview  item which contain the words index.dat

i guess this would be in this code  

Private Sub Command1_Click()

   ListView1.ListItems.Clear
   
   Set FD = fso.GetFolder(Cookies)
    Set FLS = FD.Files
   
    For Each F In FLS
    ListView1.ListItems.Add , , "Item " & F.path  ' F.path contains the full path and name of cookie
    Next

End Sub

You can do one of the following things:

'only add to listbox if filename contains ".txt"
    For Each F In FLS
      If Instr(F.path,".txt") then
         ListView1.ListItems.Add , , "Item " & F.path  ' F.path contains the full path and name of cookie
      End If
    Next


or:


'only add to listbox if filename does not contain "index.dat"
    For Each F In FLS
      If Not Instr(F.path,"index.dat") then
         ListView1.ListItems.Add , , "Item " & F.path  ' F.path contains the full path and name of cookie
      End If
    Next
