Easiest way to get plenty of information about a file!
We all need the easiest right! 😉
Well this is too easy, it’s already done for us by MFC. There is a structure called CFileStatus which holds plenty of information related to a file, for eg: it’s creation, modification, and access time, along with size of file, attribute of a file and absolute file name of the file and all this with just two lines of code and without opening the file. :wow that’s cool:
There is a static method in CFile class called GetStatus this is how we use it…
CFileStatus cfFileStatus; // Yup that's it VERIFY( CFile::GetStatus( _T( "C://FileName.someExt", cfFileStatus )));
