Print User Directory Application. User selects drive and folder from combo box and the app creates a txt file with the selected contents
Posted on 2007-07-24
I am creating my first Visual Basic Windows Application. I am a mainframe programmer and my boss is wanting me to learn some VB. He has me creating an application in Visual Basic 2005 express that uses a combo box to display the users disk drives all mapped network drives and local host drives will be displayed. He want the user to select a file from one of the disk have it's contents put into a TXT file. He also wants the user to be able to sort the output file before creating it. He wants the user to select the sort via radio buttons. The user can select sort by Name, Size, Date, and Extension. I also have a text box at the bottom of the form that generates the output file path and when the user clicks the go button the application creates the file. I have the design done I have no clue where to start on coding this thing. He let me take some beginner level online tutorials and I did the famous Hello World app which is very minor in comparison to what I am trying to do here.
