Stored procedures
Lists the subdirectories of a given directory and returns the full paths of listed subdirectories.
Other uses: For each directory found, fListDirectory can automatically call a special procedure written in WLanguage. This procedure is used to handle the current directory. In this case, fListDirectory returns the number of listed directories.
Example
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeReports and QueriesJavaUser code (UMC)PHPAjax
ADirectory, ResListDirectory are strings
DirectoryToList is string
DirectoryToList = "C:\MyDocuments"
 
// List all the directories present in DirectoryToList.
ResListDirectory = fListDirectory(DirectoryToList)
// For each directory found
FOR EACH STRING ADirectory OF ResListDirectory SEPARATED BY CR
// Add the directory into TABLE_DirTable
TableAdd(TABLE_DirTable, ADirectory)
END
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeReports and QueriesJavaUser code (UMC)PHPAjax
DirectoryToList = "C:\MyDocuments"
 
// List the directories present in DirectoryToList.
// The DirectoryAttribute procedure returns the number of read-only directories.
ResListDirectory = fListDirectory(DirectoryToList, "DirectoryAttribute")

<Result> = fListDirectory(<Path of initial directory> [, <Options>])
<Result>: Character string
Name of listed directories, separated by CR characters (Carriage Return).
<Path of initial directory>: Character string
Path of directory from which the subdirectories will be sought.
WindowsLinux This parameter can be in Ansi or Unicode format.
AndroidAndroid Widget This parameter can correspond to a full path or a path relative to the current directory (returned by fCurrentDir). This parameter is case-sensitive.
Reminder: In Android, the file system is read-only on the device and on the emulator. An application can only write to its setup directory or one of its subdirectories, as well as to the external memory (SDCard).
Universal Windows 10 App The directory path corresponds to a relative path in relation to the current directory. The current directory corresponds to the data directory of application.
Reminder: Only the directories found in the data directory associated with the application can be used.
iPhone/iPadIOS WidgetMac Catalyst This parameter can correspond to a full path or a path relative to the current directory (returned by fCurrentDir). This parameter is case-sensitive.
Reminder: On iPhone/iPad, an application has the rights to write into its setup directory or into one of its subdirectories.
<Options>: Integer constant or combination of constants (optional)
Options that can be taken into account:
fdInterruptibleThe browse can be interrupted by pressing the ESC key. The function will return the name of directories listed until the interruption.
WEBDEV - Server codeUniversal Windows 10 App This constant has no effect.
fPathUNICODE<Result> will be a string in Unicode format.
