In Production

This course is now in production. Enroll now to join in while these lessons are being developed and give your feedback! We are finishing up our study of the File System Object.


Topics Covered

In Lesson 1, we will continue our work with the File System Object. We will learn how to get a list of available drives on the system and their properties (total space, space available, volume name, file system type, etc.) We will see how to read the drive's unique serial number which can be useful for anti-piracy measures. We'll learn to check if a drive exists, which is handy for making sure your users are connected to the database network server drive. We will learn about the GetDrive and GetDriveName functions and how they're different. We'll learn to check the available file space on the drive the database is located on, which can be useful in making sure you have enough storage space for your database.

In Lesson 2, we will learn how to get the parent folder of a specific file or folder. We'll make a button to go up to the parent path (all the way to the root folder). We'll see how to determine the current folder for read/write operations. We'll see the different between GetFile and GetFileName. We'll learn how to quickly generate temporary filenames. And, we'll see how to get the "special" folders (Windows, System, Temp).

In Lesson 3, we will learn more stuff. This is just a placeholder. Real stuff coming soon...
