Try something like this;

$dir_path = '\\path\\to\\directory';
if ($handle = opendir($dir_path)) {
    while (false !== ($entry = readdir($handle))) {
        if ($entry != "." && $entry != ".." && preg_match('/\.php$/im', $entry)) {
            echo "$entry\n";

Open in new window

Have not tested this, but hope it helps.

 $dir = "*";
 foreach(glob($dir) as $file)  
if(pathinfo($file, PATHINFO_EXTENSION)=="php"){
 echo $file ."<br>";  

Open in new window

Have a look at scandir() and glob().  Both will return an array. You can use an iterator like foreach() to access each element of the array.

Just to add, if you want a sub directory then amend
$dir = "*";
$dir = "mydir/*";
