This function is found in the pfcapsrv.pbl.pfc_n_cst_filesrvwin32

​My code:

date dt_test
time tm_test

pfc_n_cst_filesrvwin32 lnv_file

if NOT IsValid(lnv_file) then
   lnv_file = CREATE pfc_n_cst_filesrvwin32
end if

li_rc =  lnv_file.of_GetLastWriteDateTime( 'C:\Users\Public\PBApps\Material_Dropdown.txt',dt_test, tm_test)

 

I see it in debug, but this functions calls the external local function:

ll_handle = FindFirstFileA(as_FileName, lstr_FindData) and the handle is returned as -1 (bad)

What am I doing wrong?

Hi

As the other answers stated this is a Ansi / Unicode problem.

You do a wrong creation of lnv_file. The file service and platform service provide a function  to create the object using the environment object. This returns the n_cst_filesrvunicode for PB 10+. In addition it checks if the object exists and won't create it in this case. 

pfc_n_cst_filesrv     lnv_file

lnv_file = f_SetFileSrv( lnv_File, TRUE)
 

Regards
Arthur

Thanks all. Arthur's comment got me on my way. I didn't want to add a new local External Function so I didn't try it.



This is the code that worked:



pfc_n_cst_filesrvunicode lnv_file



if NOT IsValid(lnv_file) then

   li_rc = f_SetFileSrv( lnv_File, TRUE)

end if



li_rc =  lnv_file.of_GetLastWriteDateTime( 'C:\Users\Public\PBApps\Material_Dropdown.txt',dt_test, tm_test)

I think you are using a very old version of PFC's? Try using FindFirstFileW() instead of ...A().

Here are the external function declarations I see in our version of pfc;s: pfc_n_cst_fileserv_unicode:

// Win 32 calls
Function ulong GetDriveTypeW (string drive) library "KERNEL32.DLL"
Function boolean CreateDirectoryW (ref string directoryname, ref os_securityattributes secattr) library "KERNEL32.DLL"

How is the FindFirstFile declared? Maybe you have to add ";Ansi" at the end of the declaration or use a 64 bit declaration of the function.

Which version of the pfc's are you using?
