FolderData (Function)
In French: RépertoireDonnées
FolderData is kept for backward compatibility.
In this version, use fDataDir.
The documentation about FolderData available in WINDEV 1.5 is as follows.
Note: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
 
Purpose
Finding out the HFSQL data directory.
Syntax
<Result> = FolderData()
<Result> is a character string corresponding to the absolute path used to access the data.
Details
FolderData returns the path of HFSQL data files.
For a setup performed via physical media, the directory is given during the setup.
For a remote setup (FTP), the Internet provider supplies the home directory for the data files and the user supplies the sub-directory where the data files are installed.
In test mode, this function returns an empty string.
The data directory is the directory where the HFSQL files are found by default, which means:
  • if HSubstDir is not used.
  • if the files are described in the analysis with a specific directory (not recommended)
Notes
The string returned does not end with a '\' (backslash)
The path returned is:
  • a full path. Example: "D:\DATA\Rewali.
  • a UNC name. Example: \\SERVERA\DATA\Rewali
Minimum required version
  • Version 9
