I am thinking about writing a program to compare MP3's in different directories that will compare file size, ID3 tags, bit rate etc. I want to be able to search the computer for MP3 files, then list them in a rich text box like you would see in windows explorer, showing duplicate files in another rich text box and be able to compare them. I quite haven't got to file manipulation in my C# class, I have already taken C++.
I also want to be able to select a file listed in the rich text box and get further info. I have read so far that I could possible use a FileInfo object to represent a file. How would I attemp to search the computer for them? As I find the files would I put them into a FileInfo Array? How would I get them to display in the Rich Text Box or any better alternative?
Not looking for somebody to do it for me, just give me some ideas/direction as I've never done this type of thing in Windows Forms/C# programming.
