The ability to extend the development library through dotNET Interoperability within the development environment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV really does open up things up. I have been asked on several occasions about creating directories via Dynamics NAV code. Directories can easily be created and deleted through the use of the System.IO.Directory class. The CreateDirectory method allows you to create all directories and subdirectories in the specified path. This makes creating nested directories rather easy. The DeleteDirectory method also allows for the recursive removal of directories.
Name ConstValue DirectoryExistsErr Directory already exists. DirectoryDoesNotExistErr Directory does not exist. DirectoryCreatedMsg Directory %1 created. DirectoryDeletededMsg Directory deleted.
Name DataType Subtype SystemIODirectory DotNet System.IO.Directory.'mscorlib' SystemIODirectoryInfo DotNet System.IO.DirectoryInfo.'mscorlib'
LOCAL CreateDirectory(path : Text;showconfirmation : Boolean) : Boolean IF SystemIODirectory.Exists(path) THEN ERROR(DirectoryExistsErr); SystemIODirectoryInfo := SystemIODirectory.CreateDirectory(path); IF showconfirmation THEN BEGIN MESSAGE(STRSUBSTNO(DirectoryCreatedMsg,SystemIODirectoryInfo.Name)); END;
LOCAL DeleteDirectory(path : Text;recursive : Boolean;showconfirmation : Boolean) IF NOT SystemIODirectory.Exists(path) THEN ERROR(DirectoryDoesNotExistErr); SystemIODirectory.Delete(path, recursive); IF showconfirmation THEN BEGIN IF NOT SystemIODirectory.Exists(path) THEN MESSAGE(DirectoryDeletededMsg); END;
