Creating Directories

Creating Directories

Is there any way to create a directory from within a PowerBuilder application without using the RUN command? Or is there a way to get the RUN command to complete execution and drop the DOS window completely so that other dependant code can execute properly? I am using:

Run(" /C mkdir C:BILLPRT",Minimized!)

However, unless processing stops (messagebox or user input), the DOS window remains and the directory cannot be used, since it appears that the RUN command has it locked.

You can use the PFC File Service:


If you are not a user of the PFC, then by examining the PFC code you can see the API call being used.
