Hi,

I am looking forward a solution to get a list of folder in a given directory using JSL.

Thanks in advance!

Re: List of folders

Something like this, perhaps?

 

 

Names Default To Here( 1 );
 
// Given a path to a folder, returns a list of all folders therein (not recursive!)
dirList =
Function({path}, {Default Local},
  // Get all files and folders in the specified folder
  fid = Files In Directory( path);
  // Remove all the files, just leaving the folders
  for(f=NItems(fid), f>=1, f--, if(IsFile(path||"/"||fid[f]), RemoveFrom(fid, f)));
  fid;
);
 
// Try out the function
path = "$DESKTOP";
Print(dirList(path));

Re: List of folders

Indeed, something like this should help!

I will try to insert this in my script, but it should help me to go forward!

Thanks a lot Ian!
