How to monitor a folder for change in vb6.0
Posted on 2004-11-18
I am looking to be pointed in the right direction.
We need to monitor a folder on our server and when there is a new pdf file put into that folder we need to pull the file name as a string and compare that to another string.
I need to know how to have a dll monitor the folder and pull the file name out of the folder?
More info. The client will pass a string to the dll, the dll will watch the folder for 60 seconds, and if in 60 secods there is a change in the folder it will pull the name of the file put into the folder?
