4.3 Browsing a Document Folder

The following example demonstrates how a client can use the Search command request ([MS-ASCMD] section 2.2.1.16) to browse a folder on a remote share. The client submits a request for a folder to view, and the server responds with a list of the folder's contents.

Request:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <Search xmlns="Search:" xmlns:documentlibrary="DocumentLibrary:">
   <Store>
     <Name>DocumentLibrary</Name>
     <Query>
       <EqualTo>
         <documentlibrary:LinkId/>
         <Value>\\myserver\myshare</Value>
       </EqualTo>
     </Query>
     <Options>
       <Range>0-999</Range>
     </Options>
   </Store>
 </Search>

Response:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <Search xmlns="Search:" xmlns:documentlibrary="DocumentLibrary:">
   <Status>1</Status>
   <Response>
     <Store>
