Hello

I am looking for a function to get the Subdirectories of the Subdirectory in Visual Basic .Net.

I am currently using IO.Directory.GetDirectories("c:\mypath\"), but this gives me only sub folder of c:\mypath e.g.

c:\mypaths\t1
c:\mypaths\t2
c:\mypaths\t3

but not the subfolders of e.g c:\mypaths\t1 e.g c:\mypaths\t1\subsubfolder1, c:\mypaths\t1\subsubfolder2, c:\mypaths\t1\subsubfolder3

Is there an easy function to access the whole folder tree?

Thank you for you help!

Regards

Max

Sounds like you need a recursive solution....something like this:

            Public Sub ListSubDirectories(ByVal FullPath As String)
                  Dim currDirectory As New IO.DirectoryInfo(FullPath)

                  MsgBox(currDirectory.FullName)

                  For Each subDirectory As IO.DirectoryInfo In currDirectory.GetDirectories
                        ListSubDirectories(subDirectory.FullName)
                  Next
            End Sub
