Hi All,

Am just trying call "paths" in my foreach loop but it keeps on saying its out of scope bcoz i declare the values inside the if loop.

Someone please enlighten me how to call this variable from foreach loop ?

This is the one am calling in my foreach loop "  string[] paths = { Firstpath, SecondPath, ThirdPath };" it depends on the if condition.

Thanks in Advance

            string[] pathsplit = path.ToString().Split('/');
           if(pathsplit[3].contains{"testFile"))
{
            string Firstpath = pathsplit[0] + "/" + pathsplit[1] + "/" + pathsplit[2] + "/" + pathsplit[3] + "/";
            string SecondPath = Firstpath + "/" + pathsplit[4] + "/";
            string ThirdPath = SecondPath + "/" + pathsplit[5] + "/";
            string[] paths = { Firstpath, SecondPath, ThirdPath };
}
else
{
        string Firstpath = pathsplit[0] + "/" + pathsplit[1] + "/" + pathsplit[2] + "/" + pathsplit[3] + "/";
            string SecondPath = Firstpath + "/" + pathsplit[4] + "/";
       string[] paths = { Firstpath, SecondPath };
}
            foreach (string pat in paths)
            {
               bool result= dir.EnsureDirectoryExists(pat);

                if (result==true)
                {
                    //do nothing
                }
                else
                {   //create dir
                    dir.createdir(pat);
                }
            }
            upload(path,filename);

        }

Before the if statement declare:

string[] paths = null;

Open in new window


then inside the if statement assign it:

paths = { Firstpath, SecondPath, ThirdPath };

Open in new window


and

paths = { Firstpath, SecondPath };

Open in new window
