DirectoryInfoGetFiles Method

Returns a file list from the current directory.

Namespace:  Alphaleonis.Win32.Filesystem
Assembly:  AlphaFS (in AlphaFS.dll) Version: 2.0
public FileInfo[] GetFiles()

Return Value

Type: FileInfo
An array of type FileInfo.
The order of the returned file names is not guaranteed; use the Sort() method if a specific sort order is required.
If there are no files in the DirectoryInfo, this method returns an empty array.
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.
