SubFolders Property


Returns a Folders collection consisting of all folders contained in a specified folder, including those with hidden and system file attributes set.




The object is always a Folder object.

The following code illustrates the use of the SubFolders property. The ActiveXObject object (JScript) and CreateObject function (VBScript) enable and return a reference to an Automation object. The GetFolder method returns a Folder object that corresponds to the specified path.

function ShowFolderList(folderspec)
   var fso, f, fc, s;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   f = fso.GetFolder(folderspec);
   fc = new Enumerator(f.SubFolders);
   s = "";
   for (;!fc.atEnd(); fc.moveNext())
         s += fc.item();
         s += "<br>";
Function ShowFolderList(folderspec)
   Dim fso, f, f1, s, sf
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.GetFolder(folderspec)
   Set sf = f.SubFolders
   For Each f1 in sf
      s = s & 
      s = s & "<BR>"
   ShowFolderList = s
End Function
