Examples

The following example uses NewFolder to create the new folder C:\TestFolder. Proper usage is shown for JScript, VBScript, and Visual Basic.

JScript:


<script language="JScript">
    function fnFolderObjectNewFolderJ()
    {
        var objShell  = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
        var objFolder = new Object;
        
        objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\\");
        if (objFolder != null)
        {
            objFolder.NewFolder("TestFolder");
        }
    }
</script>


VBScript:

<script language="VBScript">
    function fnFolderObjectNewFolderVB()
        dim objShell
        dim objFolder
        
        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\")

        if (not objFolder is nothing) then
            objFolder.NewFolder("TestFolder")
        end if

        set objFolder = nothing
        set objShell = nothing
    end function
</script>

Visual Basic:

Private Sub btnNewFolder_Click()
    Dim objShell  As Shell
    Dim objFolder As Folder

    Set objShell = New Shell
    Set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace("C:\")

    If (Not objFolder Is Nothing) Then
        objFolder.NewFolder ("TestFolder")
    End If
