Myth Self Note 9: C# WPF - Recursive Loop

using recursive loop..

the different is, using
method, it will search all files in the particular directory then store in an array..then we will loop the array and scan/do function on each item in the array...

the purpose i'm doing the coding manually (recursive loop) is because everytime i encounter a file, i will scan/do some function on it...then store it in the array...(different from GetFiles)

here's my coding..

declare array mypath to store choosen path to be scan for files
private string[] mypath;

store all choosen path in the array
mypath = File.ReadAllLines("scanpath.scn");

this will call the function to search all files in the directory and subdirectory

the function searchFile, loop root directory that i choose in scanpath file just now.
private void searchFile()
for (int i = 0; i < mypath.Length ; i++)
DirectoryInfo myRoot = new DirectoryInfo(mypath[i]);
string[] myDir = Directory.GetDirectories(mypath[i]);



the function showFile, show/add the list of files in the directory into a listview
private void showFile(DirectoryInfo myDir)
string myPath = "";
string myPath2 = "";

foreach (FileInfo file in myDir.GetFiles())
myPath = file.ToString();
myPath2 = myDir + "\\" + myPath;

string result = doFunction(myPath2);
if (!result.Equals(string.Empty))
addIntoListView(myPath, result);

the function recursiveLoop, which will loop and search files in each subdirectory in the directory..and also subdirectory in the subdirectory..untill all files in the root directory and all its subdirectory'subdirectory and so on..
private void recursiveLoop(string[] subdir)
foreach (string s in subdir)

DirectoryInfo mySub = new DirectoryInfo(s);
string myPath = "";
string myPath2 = "";

foreach (FileInfo file in mySub.GetFiles())
myPath = file.ToString();
myPath2 = mySub + "\\" + myPath;

string result = doFunction(myPath2);
if (!result.Equals(string.Empty))
addIntoListView(myPath, result);

string[] myDir = Directory.GetDirectories(s);
catch (Exception c)
// Console.WriteLine("Error: " + c.Message);

Moving a WPF Window when the WindowStyle is set to None.

central server - tracker
complete file - seed
connected computers with portion of the file - swarm
ordinary computers (not server) that have the file - peers

Myth Self Note 7: C# WPF - clear usercontrol

i - stkBody children name 'usercontrolA' should be remove when btnStart is click. And 'usercontrolA' will be replace with other usercontrol
ii - usercontrolA : stkMain, stkLeft, stkRight, btnStart

To clear the stkBody children (in this case is usercontrolA), use stkBody.Children.clear();
But we can't access stkBody within the 'usercontrolA' body itself.

When declaring and adding usercontrolA to the stkBody children, declare btnStart

usercontrolA usercontrolA = new usercontrolA();
usercontrolA.btnStart.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(btnStart_Click);

void btnScan_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

themythstoodstill: note for my future self; if don't understand,you should recall back 14/9/11..btnScan, clear parent stack

Myth Self Note 6: C# WPF - clear parent

1 - image above is a "usercontrol" which is included in another stack 'stkBody'
2 - motive : want to clear stack 'stkMain' when button 'btnStart' is clicked


*stkLeft or stkRight, each can be use because we want to select its parent.

3 - motive : want to remove 'stkLeft' when 'btnStart' is clicked


themythstoodstill: in btnStart_Click event, can't access the stkMain.

I Love You

(Lyrics by Lee Bernstein [BMI])

I love you
You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too?

I love you
You love me
We're best friends
Like friends should be
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too?
