Hi,

I have to run a special file after installing. I know the name, but the destination differs. I know I could use GetFileList and filter my own within script, but the buildin function with an optional filter would be nice.



table SetupData.GetFileList (
number ListToGet = ARCHIVE_LIST, table FilePropFilter = nil )


Returns all of the file properties, which match to the input filter table FilePropFilter.

FilePropFilter
(table) with the keys to compare with setup. Keys like FileName, Destination, ...

Returns
Same like the existing GetFileList if FilePropFilter equal to nil, a table with all files.

If FilePropFilter is not nil, a numerically indexed table containing information about the file(s) matching FileProp input keys in the setup. Might be size 1 up to all files.

Example:


-- filter for all files named "FileToFind.ext"
tFileList = SetupData.GetFileList(ARCHIVE_LIST, {FileName="FileToFind.ext"});

if tFileList then
File.Run(SessionVar.Expand(tFileList[1].Destination.."\\"..tFileList[1].FileName) );
end

-- filter for all files named "FileToFind.ext" and residing within path "%AppFolder%\\folder"
tFilePropFilter = {Filename="FileToSearch.ext", Destination=SessionVar.Expand("%AppFolder%\\folder")};
tFileList = SetupData.GetFileList(ARCHIVE_LIST, tFilePropFilter);

if tFileList then
File.Run(SessionVar.Expand(tFileList[1].Destination.."\\"..tFileList[1].FileName) );
end



Best regards,
Udo
