filesystemobject

jim
I have an example that iterates through the fso folders collection etc for
the fso files collection. The problem is this:
the example uses an enumerator to cycle through the collection items and i
would like to use a for loop but I can't get the syntax correct.
for (var i=1;i<=length;i++) {
eFile=oFldr.files;
alert(eFile.item(1).type);
}
TIA

perhaps the .item(1). should be .item(i). ?
and the i<=length be i<=oFldr.length ?

==============================================

M$ enumerates:

function ShowFolderFileList(folderspec) {
var fso, f, fc, s;
fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
f = fso.GetFolder(folderspec);
fc = new Enumerator(f.files);

for (; !fc.atEnd(); fc.moveNext()) {
alert(fc.item().name + "\n" + fc.item().type);
}

}

not tested.
