Hello Experts,

I have a C# Program written in C# 2008.

Every so often a user updates a folder with a new file of the same name. I am trying to figure out a way for my program to automatically call a method when the file is updated in the folder mentioned above.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks!

The FileSystemWatcher is a .Net component specially built for that. Have a look at http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2005/04/The-FileSystemWatcher-component.aspx
