DirectoryGetDirectories Method (String)

Returns the names of subdirectories (including their paths) in the specified directory.

Namespace:  Alphaleonis.Win32.Filesystem
Assembly:  AlphaFS (in AlphaFS.dll) Version: 2.0
public static string[] GetDirectories(
	string path


Type: SystemString
The directory to search.

Return Value

Type: String
An array of the full names (including paths) of subdirectories in the specified path, or an empty array if no directories are found.

The names returned by this method are prefixed with the directory information provided in path.

The EnumerateDirectories and GetDirectories methods differ as follows: When you use EnumerateDirectories, you can start enumerating the collection of names before the whole collection is returned; when you use GetDirectories, you must wait for the whole array of names to be returned before you can access the array. Therefore, when you are working with many files and directories, EnumerateDirectories can be more efficient.
