Folder.Items method

Retrieves a FolderItems object that represents the collection of items in the folder.

Syntax

retVal = Folder.Items()

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: FolderItems**

An object reference to the FolderItems object.

Remarks

Note

Not all methods are implemented for all folders. For example, the ParseName method is not implemented for the Control Panel folder (CSIDL_CONTROLS). If you attempt to call an unimplemented method, a 0x800A01BD (decimal 445) error is raised.

 

Examples

The following example uses Items to determine the number of items in the C:\Windows folder. Proper usage is shown for JScript, VBScript, and Visual Basic.

JScript:

<script language="JScript">
    function fnFolderObjectItemsJ()
    {
        var objShell = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
        var objFolder = new Object;
        
        objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\\WINDOWS");
        if (objFolder != null)
        {
            var objFolderItems = new Object;
            
            objFolderItems = objFolder.Items();
            if (objFolderItems != null)
            {
                document.write (objFolderItems.Count);
            }
        }
    }
</script>

VBScript:

<script language="VBScript">
    function fnFolderObjectItemsVB()
        dim objShell
        dim objFolder
        
        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\WINDOWS")

        if (not objFolder is nothing) then
            dim objFolderItems

            set objFolderItems = objFolder.Items

            if (not objFolderItems Is Nothing) then
                document.write objFolderItems.Count
            end if

            set objFolderItem = nothing
        end if

        set objFolder = nothing
        set objShell = nothing
    end function
</script>

Visual Basic:

Private Sub btnFolderObjectItems_Click()
    Dim objShell  As Shell
    Dim objFolder As Folder

    Set objShell = New Shell
    Set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\WINDOWS")

    If (Not objFolder Is Nothing) Then
        Dim objFolderItems As FolderItems

        Set objFolderItems = objFolder.Items()

        If (Not objFolderItems Is Nothing) Then
            Dim vCount As Variant

            vCount = objFolderItems.Count
        End If

        Set objFolderItems = Nothing
    End If

    Set objFolder = Nothing
    Set objShell = Nothing
End Sub
