lets pray the ftp servers you use always return exactly the same format in each line then, and that they dont have longer filenames, or usernames or longer/shorter permissions.

However, builing a tree view of something is generally an easy enough concept, and your treeview only allows 1 level, its not recursive.. but, its good you got there in the end.

Btw, shouldnt


be a little pointless as you are changing to a fully qualified path each time. and "." means dont change.



Takes you to the root folder again, this is just an example , i mean surely every person has a brain to take this code and play around with it ... i just wanted to help man ... seriously....

Its the theory you see there, i just gave an example , one can use this in small applications ... (i hate the treeview though, might do it with a listview....) but we already played with that hehehe

Thanks for all your help man , I'm finally finding some structure in my application to work with ...


I guess you could just use


or something, on my server the previous folder is the "."-dir so going there takes you back back back ... cool navigation i tell you ...


Thats very unusual. On every other OS in the world, "." is current folder, including windows and unix.


I am using print directory on My Computer or Windows Explorer, To print information about all your files. Print Directory can print the name of every file on a drive, along with the file's size, date and time of last modification, and attributes (Read-Only, Hidden, System and Archive)! And now, the list of files can be sorted by name, size, date.
