Hi Experts,

I'm having a little trouble working with files and folders in VB.Net.  I'm new to .Net and have been using VB6 for the last 2 years.  To perform the operations I would usually need with VB6 is easy.

I would usually do something like this in VB6:

Reference Windows scripting runtime.
Dim Fsys as new FileSystemObject
Dim XFile as File
Dim XFolder as Folder

Set XFolder = FSys.GetFolder("C:\Data\SubFolder1\SubFolder2\")
For Each XFile In XFolder.Files
   XFile would now reference a specific file and would exposed properties and methods i found useful.
Next XFile

How can do a similar sort of thing in .Net?

Thanks

Hello DigitalNam,

Dim dir_info As New DirectoryInfo(("C:\Data\SubFolder1\SubFolder2\")
    Dim file_infos() As FileInfo
    file_infos = dir_info.GetFiles("*:*")
    For Each file_info As FileInfo In file_infos
       file_info is now what you are looking for.        
    Next file_info


Regards,
