object.GetFile (filename)

Returns the File object for the specified file name.

This method is used to get the File object for the path that you specify. You can then use the new variable containing the file object to access its various methods and properties. The following code demonstrates this by returning the date the file was created and displaying the details in the browser.


dim filesys, filetxt, f
Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set filetxt = filesys.CreateTextFile("c:\somefile.txt", true)
Set f = filesys.GetFile("C:\somefile.txt")
Response.Write ("Your file was created on " f.DateCreated)
"Your file was created on 5/21/99 2:07:21 PM"
