What I need to do is be able to have a user enter a 'range' and then based on what they enter fill a listbox with the files in the directory that qualify against the entered range.
For example here are some sample files that would be in the directory at any given time:
Some directories have files that include 'alpha' characters and some are numeric only.
One range query example would be: AA*-AB* which I'd like to return all files that match AA or AB
Another example: AA*-CA* which I'd like to return everything except the CB07220004 file.
The 'wildcard' symbol I'd need to be flexible with like in the following example:
AA0108*-CA* which would leave out the AA01070001
I'm not familar if there is a Delphi component out there that does this type of thing or what method of coding this would be the best way without too much effort. If you need more clarification, let me know and I'll try to explain what I need to do further.
Thanks in advance for any time spent on this. I appreciate it!
