How would I write a message when there are no files to process in the foreach loop?

I am writing a C# application.

I use:  foreach (string file in files1)
            {              
            }

How would I write a message when there are no files to process in the foreach loop?

Please post the actual code and declarations of those variable not declared in the code.

In the following function, how would I exit the application and inform the user that there are no files to process?


public static void ProcessDirectory(string TARGET_DIR_IN, StreamWriter sw1)
        {
            string[] files1 = Directory.GetFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*_FRONT.TIF").Select(path => Path.GetFileName(path)).ToArray();
            string[] files2 = Directory.GetFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*_REAR.TIF").Select(path => Path.GetFileName(path)).ToArray();
            ManualResetEvent[] doneEvents = new ManualResetEvent[files1.Length];
            _numerOfThreadsNotYetCompleted = files1.Length;
            int i = 0;

            foreach (string file in files1)
            {
                string checkPrefix = file.ToUpper().Replace("_FRONT.TIF", "");
                string checkBack = checkPrefix + "_Rear.TIF";
                string checkImage = checkPrefix + ".tif";
                file_tif_date = checkPrefix.Substring(0, 8);

                if (File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkBack))
                {
                    if (!File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkImage))
                    {

                        //doneEvents[ I ] = new ManualResetEvent(false);
                        ProcessImageThread chk = new ProcessImageThread(checkPrefix, TARGET_DIR_IN);
                        ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(chk.ProcessImage, i);
                        i++;
                    }
                }
                else
                {              
                    sw1.WriteLine(checkBack + " file is missing");
                    if (sw1 != null) sw1.Close();
                    Environment.Exit(0);                    
                }
            }

            //Wait for all threads in pool to calculation...
            //WaitHandle.WaitAll(doneEvents);

            _doneEvent.WaitOne();

            //Console.WriteLine("All image processing are completed.");

            foreach (string file in files2)
            {
                string checkPrefix = file.ToUpper().Replace("_REAR.TIF", "");
                string checkFront = checkPrefix + "_FRONT.TIF";

                if (File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkFront))
                {
                }
                else
                {
                    sw1.WriteLine(checkFront + " file is missing");
                }
            }

            if (sw1 != null) sw1.Close();
        }

Hi zimmer9;

In both of the foreach loops it will continue to execute the foreach as long as there are items in the collection, in this case files1 and files2. So if you want to post some message when there are no more files to process in files1 then do it as the first statement after that foreach loop and the same goes for files2 foreach loop.

Just check the count (or length) before you enter your loop and take the appropriate action, if any; e.g. -
public static void ProcessDirectory(string TARGET_DIR_IN, StreamWriter sw1)
{
	string[] files1 = Directory.GetFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*_FRONT.TIF").Select(path => Path.GetFileName(path)).ToArray();
	string[] files2 = Directory.GetFiles(TARGET_DIR_IN, "*_REAR.TIF").Select(path => Path.GetFileName(path)).ToArray();
	ManualResetEvent[] doneEvents = new ManualResetEvent[files1.Length];

	if (files1.Count() == 0)
	{
		// You can generate a message or output or whatever to alert that there are no files to process
		Console.WriteLine("There are no front images to process");

		// Return from the method
		return;
	}

	_numerOfThreadsNotYetCompleted = files1.Length;
	int i = 0;

	foreach (string file in files1)
	{
		string checkPrefix = file.ToUpper().Replace("_FRONT.TIF", "");
		string checkBack = checkPrefix + "_Rear.TIF";
		string checkImage = checkPrefix + ".tif";
		file_tif_date = checkPrefix.Substring(0, 8);

		if (File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkBack))
		{
			if (!File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkImage))
			{
				//doneEvents[ I ] = new ManualResetEvent(false);
				ProcessImageThread chk = new ProcessImageThread(checkPrefix, TARGET_DIR_IN);
				ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(chk.ProcessImage, i);
				i++;
			}
		}
		else
		{
			sw1.WriteLine(checkBack + " file is missing");
			if (sw1 != null) sw1.Close();
			Environment.Exit(0);
		}
	}

	//Wait for all threads in pool to calculation...
	//WaitHandle.WaitAll(doneEvents);

	_doneEvent.WaitOne();

	//Console.WriteLine("All image processing are completed.");

	if (files2.Count() == 0)
	{
		// You can generate a message or output or whatever to alert that there are no files to process
		Console.WriteLine("There are no back images to process");

		// Return from the method
		return;
	}

	foreach (string file in files2)
	{
		string checkPrefix = file.ToUpper().Replace("_REAR.TIF", "");
		string checkFront = checkPrefix + "_FRONT.TIF";

		if (File.Exists(TARGET_DIR_IN + checkFront))
		{
		}
		else
		{
			sw1.WriteLine(checkFront + " file is missing");
		}
	}

	if (sw1 != null) sw1.Close();
}
