DirectoryGetDirectories Method (String, String, SearchOption)
public static string GetDirectories( string path, string searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption )
Public Shared Function GetDirectories ( path As String, searchPattern As String, searchOption As SearchOption ) As String()
public: static array<String^>^ GetDirectories( String^ path, String^ searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption )
static member GetDirectories : path : string * searchPattern : string * searchOption : SearchOption -> string
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.
