Storages & Files GetSubItemInfo
GetSubItemInfo method

Returns the SFInfo object for the addressed sub-item (storage or stream)


Set info = object.GetSubItemInfo( path)


path - relative path of the sub-stream. For example: "substorage1\substorage2\stream1". See remarks.

returned value: the SFInfo object for the item.


Set info = stg.GetSubItemInfo("substorage\substorage2\item")


Like the SubItemExists, OpenSubStream, OpenSubStorage and the other similar methods this one is a helper method that allows application to obtain the information about an item in depth.

path string - is abstract storage path very similar to the directory paths in the file system. The "\" or "/" delimiters can be used to separate the names of the storages in it. For example "a\b\c" will mean the item "c" in the storage "b" which is in turn in the storage "a". The virtual root is the storage whose member is called. 

Limitations: The basic features supported by all the storages cause some limitations - the path to the sub-item should be accessible which means no storage in the path must be locked for exclusive use in order method to work correctly. The method requires read access to all the storages specified in the path string.

Applies to: SFStorage object
