File function is different in 2.8 than in 2.7

Post by antonello.negrone »

Hello,

I'm on the way to convert a huge app from 2.7 and 2.8 and running it for the first time, I noticed that the line:

File(Workdir()+"*.*")

in 2.7 returns TRUE but in 2.8 returns FALSE.  Trying on X# returns TRUE.
Is that a known issue? Is there a way to have the same behaviour?

Thanks
Antonello

HI Antonello,

Where does Workdir() point to in the VO28 case? I do not have access to it right now to test it, but IIRC in VO28 by default it points to a My Documents folder, that might be empty indeed so File() doesn't find an files and correctly returns FALSE. I think VO27 points to the VO Bin folder and X# to the fodler where the .exe is located.

Hi Chris,

workDir() looks to point the current exe path correctly.
Thanks

File function is different in 2.8 than in 2.7

Post by Chris »

HI Antonello,

I just checked VO28SP4, indeed it seems that when you use the * or *.* wildcards it returns FALSE, even if files do exist in the folder. At least if you specify *.txt and there are .txt files, then it returns TRUE.

This indeed looks like a bug of VO28 to me, but unfortunately we can't do anything about it now...Only workaround I can think of is to redefine the function in your own code, so it behaves as in VO27 and as in X#.
