     Hello Friends, I'm back this time with another COM which scans for directories/folder. Many will appreciate this effort simply because this COM searches for folders and subfolders from a given path and populating it in an array. Some of you may ask "Well what's new? ...aren't there applications that already do that?" ... my answer is YES, there are others too ...but maybe not as efficient or fast as this one. This COM uses the "iterative flag check" algorithm to eliminate redundant entries and also avoid skipping over unchecked paths. Besides, this is a COm you can now use it along your VB/VBA/ASP application ...with the ease of just a few lines of coding!! To try an example of its efficiency,I'd suggest that you start a "Standard EXE Application" in VB, reference(Project->References) this component(ArunSysUtils.dll), add a command button and a list box. You will find a demo project that uses the COM called Client.vbp

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
