  • Windows Mobile Only the archives in ZIP format are available.

Subscript of files in the archive

When a file is added into an archive, a subscript is automatically assigned to the file. This subscript corresponds to the order in which the files are included in the archive. To select a file in the archive, you can use:
  • the subscript of the element (the subscript of an element is returned by zipFindFile).
  • the stored path of element.

Stored path

The table below presents the paths stored in the archive according to:
  • the access path to the file,
  • the stored path section.
The current directory is: "C:\Temp".
zipAddFileFile locationzipNonezipDirectoryzipDrive
zipAddFile("Archi",
"File.txt")
C:\Temp\File.txtFile.txtFile.txtFile.txt
zipAddFile("Archi",
"Data\File.txt")

zipAddFile("Archi",
"D:\Data\File.txt")

Remark: If the zipDrive constant is used, the WDZ format stores the full path of the file (including the drive letter) while the ZIP format does not store the drive letter.
Windows Mobile The table below presents the paths stored in the archive according to:
  • the access path to the file,
  • the stored path section.
