File Path Concatenation

Post by jyoung » Wed Jan 31, 2018 6:19 am

Is there a function, intrinsic or something that can concatenate file paths with the correct slashes for Windows and IBMi, kinda like how .NET's Path.Combine works?

I find myself doing this alot

Code: Select all

if (*OSAPI = IBMI)
#templatePath := 'templates/PTOTemplate.xlsx'
#templatePath := 'templates\PTOTemplate.xlsx'
I could easily make something to handle it, but would rather use things that are baked into LANSA instead of rolling my own.

Hi Joe

If I recall correctly, the *PATHDELIM system variable will solve your problem

#templatePath := 'templates' + *PATHDELIM + 'PTOTemplate.xlsx'
