Example: FB_EnumFindFileEntry (ST)

In the local TwinCAT system all files should be listed in the following directory: C:\Windows\system32\. The file names should be written as messages into the TwinCAT XAE error list. It should be possible to cancel this process. A rising edge at the bEnum variable starts the listing of found files. A rising edge at the bAbort variables aborts the process.

PROGRAM P_TestEnumEntry
    fbEnum: FB_EnumFindFileEntry := ( sNetID := '', tTimeout := T#5s, sPathName := 'C:\Windows\System32\*.*' );
    bEnum : BOOL;
    bAbort: BOOL;
    nState: BYTE;
CASE nState OF
        IF bEnum THEN             (* flag set ? *)
            bEnum       := FALSE;         (* reset flag *)
            fbEnum.eCmd := eEnumCmd_First;    (* enum first entry *)
            nState      := 1;

        fbEnum( bExecute := TRUE );
        nState     := 2;

        fbEnum( bExecute := FALSE );
        IF NOT fbEnum.bBusy THEN
            IF NOT fbEnum.bError THEN

                    ADSLOGSTR( ADSLOG_MSGTYPE_HINT OR ADSLOG_MSGTYPE_LOG, 'FB_EnumFindFileEntry, find file name: %s', fbEnum.stFindFile.sFileName );

Example: FB_EnuFindFileList (FBD)

A rising edge at the bFirst variables activates the process. If successful the file names are entered in the fileList array variable.

PROGRAM P_TestEnumList
    fbEnum      : FB_EnumFindFileList;
    filesList   : ARRAY[1..10] OF ST_FindFileEntry;
    bFirst      : BOOL;
