I want to find files that match my mask such as 96220*.pdf.  We store revision information after the part number and I need to snag whatever is available in the release folder that matches my root part number.

I am able to build the path where the files are located.  I am stuck on how to display the name of the file that is found.

How do I return a string that I can use to build by hyperlink?


        string filestub;
        filestub =  leftchars + @"000 - " + leftchars + "999";

        string dirstub;
        string dir2use;
        string files2find;
        string filemask;

        dirstub = @"d:\release\" + filestub + @"\";
        files2find = dirstub + s2parse + @"*.pdf";
        filemask = s2parse + @"*.pdf";
        Label1.Text = "Dirstub: = " + dirstub;  // this works
        Label2.Text = "filemask = "+ filemask;  // this works

        string[] myfiles = Directory.GetFiles(dirstub, filemask);

        if (myfiles != null)
            Label3.Text = myfiles.ToString();  //help!  displays "system.string[]"
