Iterate through files in a particular folder

I am building a website that stores images in a folder with the id of a particular user.  If a user stores more than one picture the folder will look like this

Images
 - 1001_web.jpg
 - 1001_web1.jpg
 - 1001_web2.jpg


Given I have a userid, how can I get a collection of images  that start with that userid?

Hi rodmjay;

Try this

        Dim di As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo("FolderPath")
        Dim fi() As System.IO.FileInfo
        fi = di.GetFiles(UserId & "1001_web?..jpg")

        For Each f As System.IO.FileInfo In fi
            Console.WriteLine(f.FullName)
        Next

maybe you could help me a littlw with the search pattern a little bit.

The userid is the 1001 and there could be other images that are 1001_thumb, etc

Hi rodmjay;

This will return all jpg files for user ID 1001.

    fi = di.GetFiles("1001*.jpg")

This will return all files in the directory for user 1001.

    fi = di.GetFiles("1001*")
