I would like to know if there is anyway to get the filesize of one
particular file in the local filesystem.
I heard about a solution using ActiveX but obviously it only works in
IE.

Thnks a lot ,

No.

IE.


More specifically, IE for Windows, and then it only "works" if the user
allows full access to the File System.

Otherwise, ask the user:

var fileSize = prompt('What size is file ABC.EFG?','File Size');

Well asking the user isn't an option.

Even with IE 6 i need to have the server url on the trusted sites. I
believe that the default internet zone is actually not allowing
creation of ActiveX objects :/

Thnks a lot though!

Why? Is it some file the user wouldn't want you looking at?

No, it doesn't. It prompts for the use of ActiveX

Just migrating some code from CDONTS to CDO and noticed some behaviour I want to verify. When using cdoSendUsingPickup the outgoing email spools to the local filesystem first before being routed out. When using cdoSendUsingPort it goes directly to the remote email server and seems to bypass the virtual SMTP server running on the local machine (which can be stopped). This is all fine. I noticed that sending emails that exceed the...

Hello, When I have read a file with x.xxx.xxx.xxx bytes it is sometimes handy to show it in an diverent format than bytes. Is there a handy way to do this? Or is there a function for it? When it is a big file I want to see a MB size and when it is a lower file size then I want to see a kB size for example.

I get a list of filenames from a directory with the following code, but I can not work out how to get the filesize of the filename I have just found. I guess it is fileinfo.length, but I can not see how to turn my filename(string) into a statement which would give me the filesize - the brain is very slow today. Any help gratefully appreciated. Dim files() As String = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(root, patt)
