I have no clue as to why I'm getting the Use of unassigned local variable 'myCounter' error. The highlight is on the second myCounter in the following statement: myCounter = myCounter + 1;
I'm just trying to have a variable act as a counter and then adds the total number of files found in a directory. Thanks in advance for the answer.
Here's the full code listing:
private void btnSeek_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
b4Change = txtPath.Text;
Directions = fBDialog.SelectedPath;
if (Directions.Length <= 4 & Directions.Length > 1)
txtPath.Text = b4Change;
MessageBox.Show(Directions + " drive location too large to search. Please browse to a subfolder or create one before attempting your search.");
//seek options start here.
string fileEntries = Directory.GetFiles(txtPath.Text);
foreach (string fileName in fileEntries)
// do something with fileName
Directions = Path.GetFileName(fileName);
//theName = Path.GetFileName((fileName));
//theName = (fileName);
myCounter = myCounter + 1;
txtFound.Text = Convert.ToString(myCounter);
//change main form options here.
tbOptions.SelectedTab = tabPage2;
txtDirections.Text = "Step 3. Click on Rename Files button to actually perform final action.";
