Syntax
<Result> = zipExtractPath(<Archive> , <File subscript> [, <Path section to extract>])
<Result>: Character string
Requested path section.
<Archive>: Character string (with quotes) or zipArchive variable
Name of archive to use.
This name can correspond to:
<File subscript>: Integer
Subscript of file in the archive. This subscript is returned by zipFindFile.
<Path section to extract>: Optional constant (or combination of constants)
Section of file path to extract:
zipDriveReturns the unit name only (WDZ format only). This constant has no effect for the archives whose type differs from WDZ.
zipExtensionReturns the extension of the file (preceded by ".")
zipFilenameReturns the name of the file (without its extension)
zipDirectoryReturns the different directories of the file (the name and the extension of the file are not returned)
By default, the extracted path corresponds to the stored path.
Remarks

Reminder

    Example of extracted path

    If the stored path is "C:\Temp\Data\File.txt", zipExtractPath returns:
    • zipExtension: .txt
    • zipFilename: File
    • zipDirectory: \Temp\Data\
    • zipDrive: C:
    • zipFilename+zipExtension: File.txt
    • zipDirectory+zipFilename: \Temp\Data\File
    • ...
    Archives in 7z format: The "\" character (beginning of the path) is not returned.

    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")
    C:\Temp\Data\File.txtFile.txtData\File.txtData\File.txt
    zipAddFile("Archi",...
    "D:\Data\File.txt")
    D:\Data\File.txtFile.txtData\File.txtD:\Data\File.txt
    Note: If the zipDrive constant is used:
    • the WDZ format stores the full path of the file (including the drive letter).
    • the ZIP format does not store the drive letter.
    • the 7z format stores the directories only.

    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 found 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.
