FUNCTION FAttrib() AS DWORD
public static uint FAttrib()
A value indicating the attributes of the current file.
The constants in the following table can be used individually or added together to determine which attributes are applicable:
Note: It is not uncommon for a file to have more than one attribute. For example, it may be read-only and archived, which would be represented as FC_READONLY + FC_ARCHIVED or _Or(FC_READONLY, FC_ARCHIVED).
Since FFCount() and FFirst() cannot distinguish files based on their read and archive attributes, FAttrib() can be useful in determining these attributes. For example, if FAttrib() returns FC_NORMAL, you know that the current file is read/write and not archived, and if it is FC_ARCHIVED (or FC_NORMAL + FC_ARCHIVED), you know the file is read/write and archived.
This example uses FAttrib() in conjunction with FFirst() and FNext():
// Find the first file matching docu*.txt
? FFirst("docu*.txt", FC_NORMAL)
? FAttrib() // 32 (FC_ARCHIVED)
? FNext() // Next file matching docu*.txt
? FAttrib() // 33
// 33 is FC_READONLY + FC_ARCHIVED
