Syntax
<Result> = zipFindFile(<Archive> , <Sought path> [, <Search mode> [, <Start>]])
<Result>: Integer
  • Subscript of the file sought in the archive,
  • -1 if an error occurred.
<Archive>: Character string (with quotes) or zipArchive variable
Name of the archive in which the file must be sought.
This name can correspond to:
<Sought path>: Character string (with quotes)
Full or partial path of the file to find. This parameter can correspond to:
  • a file name,
  • the full path of a file,
  • the path and name of a file,
  • ...
When a path is specified, the directory separator is the back-slash (\), and the root directory should not be specified.
The search is not case sensitive (lowercase/uppercase characters).
<Search mode>: Optional boolean
  • True (default value) for an exact-match search,
  • False for a generic search. The search is not case sensitive (lowercase/uppercase characters).
Archives in 7z format: This parameter is not available.
<Start>: Optional integer
Subscript of the file from which the search must be performed (1 by default, which means the first file included in the archive).
Archives in 7z format: This parameter is not available.
Remarks

Search mode

Depending on the selected <Search mode>, the result may differ:
  • If an exact-match search is performed, zipFindFile will find the files whose stored path is strictly identical to <Sought path>.
    For example: an archive contains "Temp.doc", "Temp1.doc" and "Temp2.doc". An exact-match search for "Temp.doc" will find "Temp.doc".
  • If a generic search is performed, zipFindFile will find all the files whose stored path contains <Stored path>.
    For example: an archive contains "Temp.doc", "Temp1.doc" and "Temp2.doc". A generic search for the "Temp" string will find three files.
Reminder: The stored path is defined by zipAddFile or zipAddDirectory.

Subscript of files in the archive

When a file is added into an archive, a subscript is automatically assigned to the file. This subscript corresponds to the order in which the files are included in the archive. To select a file found in the archive, you can use:
  • the subscript of the element.
  • the stored path of element.
