Copy a picture to another folder

Posted 05 March 2010 - 05:32 AM

I was writing a program and I need to copy the pictures uploaded in the form to another folder in the application path, but tyhe prob is I do not know how to use the "FileCopy" syntax. Can Anyone assist me?

All is get is:

Private sub CmdSavePic_Click()
call Filecopy(Source as string, Target as String)
end sub

I used the commondiaolg1.filename as source; and App.path & "\Uploads" as Target but it won't work.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

both source and destination need to be a fully qualified path AND file name... C:\A\MyImage.bmp, C:\Program Files\MyApp\Uploads\MyImage.bmp...

However, if you are on vista or 7 then you cannot use the program files path as it is protected by the OS, you would need to use the environ("appdata") path instead and/or if you have not created the uploads directory, then you will need to create it with mkdir...

Good Luck
