Rename folder - return result ?

Post by hopkins » Sun Jun 28, 2020 9:03 am

Hi,

When using the rename folder command, is there a return value indicating any errors ?
Could not find this in the documentation.

Thanks

Hi,

did you try checking the result?
Guess it should be empty if all fine,
otherwise some indication..

HTH,

What sort of errors would you envisage?

Path and permissions errors are common. File I/O is an area with so many moving parts it's very useful to not only check the result, but when not empty also check the sysError function to get the specific error code from the OS.

Hopkins.

Know that "the result" works behind the scenes giving us information about the success, failure or status of commands and functions. It is the unsung hero of the progress of LC processes. Read about it in the dictionary; it is often neglected, or worse, forgotten entirely.
