ParentFolder Property

Returns the folder object for the parent of the specified file or folder. Read-only.


                      object.ParentFolder 

The object is always a File or Folder object.

The following code illustrates the use of the ParentFolder property with a file:

function ShowFileAccessInfo(filespec)
{
   var fso, f, s;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   f = fso.GetFile(filespec);
   s = f.Name + " in " + f.ParentFolder + "<br>";
   s += "Created: " + f.DateCreated + "<br>";
   s += "Last Accessed: " + f.DateLastAccessed + "<br>";
   s += "Last Modified: " + f.DateLastModified; 
   return(s);
}

Function ShowFileAccessInfo(filespec)
   Dim fso, f, s
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.GetFile(filespec)
   s = UCase(f.Name) & " in " & UCase(f.ParentFolder) & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Created: " & f.DateCreated & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Last Accessed: " & f.DateLastAccessed & "<BR>"
   s = s & "Last Modified: " & f.DateLastModified   
   ShowFileAccessInfo = s
End Function
