Set File/Folder Date/Time in NT/2k/XP
========================
This is a example showing how to get information and change file and folder date time. Said to be a little more difficult on NT based operating systems this example does that using API.
Please note that this example as such doesn't work on win 9x.

Get the package with examples from here:
http://codescript.vdsworld.com/VDS5src/Set_date_time-XP.zip

If you don't want to deal with directories then use the built in VDS commands:
@FILE(<file description>, T)
and
FILE SETDATE, <file path>, <time>, <date>

However it may not set all the 3 attributes seperately.

Here are the commands and functions available in this DSU :

Get File/Folder Date time Info:
=========================
Code:
%A= @FILEINFO(GET,CREATED,%F)

%A= @FILEINFO(GET,MODIFIED,%F)

%A= @FILEINFO(GET,ACCESSED,%F)

where %F is the path of the file or directory to obtain info.


Set the File File/Folder Date time Info:
========================================

Code:
FILEINFO SET,CREATED,%F,Date,Month,year,hour,min,sec

FILEINFO SET,MODIFIED,%F,Date,Month,year,hour,min,sec

FILEINFO SET,ACCESSED,%F,Date,Month,year,hour,min,sec

where %F is the path of the file or directory to be modified.


Win 9x version may be easier but I never tried one for it. Because I am not currently using it. Sorry.

Disclaimer:
===========
The unit uses windows API. Use at your own risk.


Enjoy.

Thanks for this codescript! Very Happy


I have been trying to figure this one out myself. I guess you saw my plea for help in the general section? If not, then thanks anyway!

Sure am glad that your absence from the forum was a short one! Very Happy

Cheers
Sanjuro
