fTempPath (Function)
In french: fRépertoireTemp
Returns the name of directory used to store the temporary files.
// Retrieve the name of temporary directory
ResTempDir = fTempPath()
Syntax
<Result> = fTempPath()
<Result>: Character string
  • Path of directory used to store the temporary files (up to 260 characters). This path ends with the "\" character.
  • Empty string ("") if an error occurred. To find out the error details, use ErrorInfo associated with the errMessage constant.
Note: The result of fTempPath is always a character string in Ansi format. However, the result can be stored in a Unicode character string.
Remarks

Temporary directory

If the temporary directory supported by the system does not exist on the current computer, fTempPath returns:
  • in Windows 98 or Me: the current directory on the computer.
  • in Windows 2000, NT or CE: the name of the default temporary directory supported by the system. No test is run regarding the existence of the temporary directory.
Caution: In Windows Vista (and later), when the UAC system is enabled, the temporary directory is different depending on whether the user has administrator privileges or not.
