DirectoryGetFiles Method (String, String, SearchOption)
public static string GetFiles( string path, string searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption )
Public Shared Function GetFiles ( path As String, searchPattern As String, searchOption As SearchOption ) As String()
public: static array<String^>^ GetFiles( String^ path, String^ searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption )
static member GetFiles : path : string * searchPattern : string * searchOption : SearchOption -> string
The returned file names are appended to the supplied path parameter.
The order of the returned file names is not guaranteed; use the Sort() method if a specific sort order is required.
The EnumerateFiles and GetFiles methods differ as follows: When you use EnumerateFiles, you can start enumerating the collection of names before the whole collection is returned; when you use GetFiles, 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, EnumerateFiles can be more efficient.
