I am writing a 2D terrain editor/top down strategy game. I want to however be able to load heroes that I have made in a different program and saved them as a .chr file. What I need is to know how to retrieve a list of the files in a directory, and so on, so that I can make my own save/load box. I am going to do my own graphics so I don''t have to get involved with Windows GUI, but I still need this to list the files. If anyone could help, I''d really appreciate it. --Vic--

If you don''t mind MFC -- look at the CFileFind class. There are also some standard C functions to do what you want but I don''t remember the names.

I was working on something similar to this. I can e-mail you the code. what it does is counts all of the file types in a given directory, then gets and stores all of the file names in a list. later I''m actually going to do something with it. if you want the source, e-mail me and I''ll send it to you.
