Fully Kill Recursive Function
I have a bit of a problem with a recursive function. Basically what the function does is search for files, I used some code from an FAQ or post here on vbcity and it works very well. Below is the definition, you may know the funciton i mean from it.
Function GetAllFiles(ByVal path As String, ByVal filespec As String, _
Optional RecurseDirs As Boolean) As Collection
Basically in my program you click a button on the main form and a dialog box pops up, with a listview and 2 buttons on it. You then choose to browse for a file (common dialog box etc...) or search for a file. The search for a file button opens another dialog box with a listview and search buttons and you type your search in and then the search begins. It prints any matching files into a listview. You then select which files you want and click another button, which adds the selected items to the first dialog box's listview. You can click OK and the dialog will close and you will see all the files you picked. This works fine.
The problem occurs when you dont wait for the search to end. There are DoEvents commands in parts of the recursive search function so the listview will show a file as it is found. This also means you can select it and add it whilst the search is still running (which is good, i want this). However you can also click ok and go back to see the files you've selected, but the search is still running. If you quit the program, it will still remain in task manager. I want the search to stop the minute OK is clicked (the only code for ok at the moment is unload me). Any ideas how you can do this, if at all?
One other thing, if I click ok whilst a search is running, and the dialog closes, and then I click search again to open the dialog back up, it will display any matches it finds as the previous search runs (ie ones that were not shown before, new ones that the halfway through search finds)
All help much appreciated

Ackerman Function - Recursive Function Help Needed
I recently had to write the following function in maple known as the Ackerman function. However I need to write a function in VBA to calculate it.
The function in maple was the following.
if n=0 then RETURN(m+1) fi;
if m=0 then RETURN(a(n-1,1)) fi;
The problem I am having is getting the function to stop iterating. It wont calculate a result even for simple results like T(1,1).
The code I have written in VB is as follows.
Function T(n As Integer, m As Integer)
If m = 0 Then
T(n, m) = T(n - 1, 1)
If n = 0 Then
T(n, m) = m + 1
T(n, m) = T(n - 1, T(n, m - 1))
Any Ideas? Is it possible

Recursive Function Help
Last night I spent forever trying to figure out how to do this. Could somebody tell me how to get started, maybe provide some example code?
Urgent!! I wrote a recursive function. This recursive function will start when I click on the 'Start' button. I need to stop this recursive function when I click on the 'Stop' button, but the 'Stop' button only responce after the recursive function finish, how can I always listen to the 'Stop' button event so I can terminate the recursive function any time as I want? Thanks.
here is what am trying to do
let say i have a directory called
thats the root
in that directory there is let say 30 different artits
and in those artists SOME can have more than one album
those that dont have more than one album
the songs are located in just the name of the artist
so if artst1 had one album
all the songs would be located in c:Artistsartist1
and if artist2 had 2 albums
it would be like
c:artistsartist2album1 (songs for this album go here)
c:artistsartist2album2 (songs for album2 go here)
so i would like someone to help me out with making a function that when given c:artist
it will go into every directory
and copy artist name(directory), album name( sub directory), and song names (filenames)
into a table..
Recursive VB Function?
I am looking for a recursive function to step through a tree like structure. What make this difficult is that each child node in the tree only knows if it has a child. It does not know about its parent. My problem is that I can recurse through the tree, moveing to each child nodes child, but I can not return to the previous levels. I do not know how many level deep I need to go, so it must be recursive.
Below is a typical tree structure I will need to recurse. I start at A, then I can get to ABC1. But how to I return to AB1 and continue the process? As you can see, the tree can be many levels deep and I only know if the node has a child and how to get to that child.

Problem With Recursive Function
I have a problem with the following code:
Private scanData() As String Private Sub Form_Load()List1.AddItem "c:My Documents"List1.AddItem "e:"End Sub Private Sub Command1_Click()scanfolders3End Sub Public Sub scanfolders3()Dim startTime, elapTime As DoubleDim startFolder As StringDim scanResult As BooleanscanResult = FalseForm1.MousePointer = vbHourglassstartTime = CDbl(Timer)ReDim scanData(4, 0)startFolder = List1.TextscanResult = scanFolders(startFolder)elapTime = CDbl(Timer) - startTimeForm1.MousePointer = vbNormalText1.Text = elapTimeEnd Sub Public Function scanFolders(fpath As String) As BooleanDim x As DoubleSet fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") For Each fl In fso.GetFolder(fpath).Files x = UBound(scanData, 2) + 1 ReDim Preserve scanData(4, x) scanData(0, x) = fl.Name scanData(1, x) = fpath scanData(2, x) = fl.Size scanData(3, x) = fl.Type DoEvents x = x + 1 Next fl For Each fldr In fso.GetFolder(fpath).SubFolders scanFolders fldr.Path Next fldrSet fso = NothingSet fldr = NothingSet fl = NothingscanFolders = TrueEnd Function
The main aim of the code is to populate an array with the details of files in a given directory. The form has been added to assess the performance for various drives/directories.
The problem is that subsequent runs of the code take relatively longer each time. Given that "e:" is a 512mb pendrive with about 300mb used and that "c:My Documents" contains about 4GB typical results with times in seconds are:
c:My Documents 17.68
c:My Documents 86.45
I can't see where the resources are leaking or what is causing this build up after the larger directory is scanned.
Things I've tried are:
1. Not using Preserve - although this wouldn't work as needed anyway it was no quicker.
2. Commenting out DoEvents - Didn't help
Making A Recursive Function
Hi, I need help making a recursive function for the code listed
I posted here previously for solution to listing all subkeys
and values of a registry key. I got the code to do it, but
it only lists on level, so it needs to be put in a recursive
function in order to go through the entire branch.
I've tried to do this but I never worked with recursion before
and I can't get it to work.
I just need to add all the keys and values to a list in this
if it is a key or if it is a value:
This code does that all but only one step. Can someone
help me with this, it is a one minute job for someone who
worked with recursion before. Thanks in advance.

How To Write A Recursive Function?
I'm trying to write a recursive function but in vain... thus i sincerely hope you could help me... Actually my purpose of this recursive search is to search for all children, grandchildren, great grandchildren...etc of a particular record. Suppose in my table, I have two fields, Parent and Child.
May - John
Jess - Mike
Jess - Nick
John - Peter
John - Jess
John - Watson
Peter - Carrie
Suppose I start with a name John. My aim is to 1st search thru the parent field for all records with parent, John. In this case, the records will be those of children Peter, Jess, and Watson.
For each of these children, I will search thru the table again, for their children (aka John's grandchildren)..
Thus I need a recursive method to traverse thru the records.
Can anyone help?
Thank you very very much.
Recursive Function Calls
In order to generate a unique number I wrote the following simple Function. It fails to do the job because there is no recursive Function call. However, using an analogous Subroutine works because the desired recursive call to the Sub _does_ happen.
Is this a VB feature, and, if so, why?
Public gcollUniqNum as New Collection
Public glUniqNum as Long
Public Function UniqueNum() As Long
Dim lNum As Long
lNum = GenRan(1)
If InColl(gcollUniqNum, CStr(lNum)) = True Then
'NO recursive call to UniqueKey.
'Function exited with UniqueKey = 0
lNum = UniqueKey
gcollUniqNum.Add lNum, CStr(lNum)
UniqueNum = lNum
Public Sub GenerateUniqueNumber()
Dim lNum As Long
lNum = GenRan(1)
If InColl(gcollUniqNum, CStr(lNum)) = True Then
'DOES result in recursive call
gcollUniqNum.Add lNum, CStr(lNum)
glUniqNum = lNum
Public Function InCollection(collDesignated As Collection, Key As String) As Boolean
On Error GoTo NotThere
'VB generates a run-time error if Key is not in collDesignated

Recursive Function In Formula Not Working?
I am trying to use a recursive function to return the number of levels for a specific parent but once I put the function in an equation it doesn't work. I receive a "ByRef Argument type mismatch error" for Level(Temp) which is fine when on a stand alone line.
Function Level(Parent As String) As Integer
Dim Temp As Variant
Temp = DLookup("[Component]", "TestData", "[ItemNo] = '" & Parent & "'")
If IsNull(Temp) Then
MsgBox ("Found NULL")
Level = 1
Debug.Print "ItemNo Component", "Level"
Debug.Print Parent; " "; Temp; " "; Level; Chr$(13)
MsgBox ("Found ItemNo")
Debug.Print "ItemNo Component", "Level"
Debug.Print Parent; " "; Temp; " "; Level; Chr$(13)
'**** This Works Fine
'**** This Doesn't Work, Why?

Recursive File List Function
I have a function that will return any files in a given folder. But in order to make it also return files in subfolders, i was told i would have to make it recursive. Recursive functions are something ive never had to use yet...and quite frankly i dont understand them. Could someone tell me what modifications i would have to make to this function to make it return subfolder files as well?
Function DirList(strDir As String) As String() 'returns a 0 based array with the files in strDir 'Can contain a pattern such as "*.*" Dim Count As Integer Dim sFiles() As String Dim sFile As String sFile = Dir$(strDir) Count = -1 Do Count = Count + 1 ReDim Preserve sFiles(Count) sFiles(Count) = sFile sFile = Dir$ Loop DirList = sFilesEnd Function
Calling A Recursive Function/sub From Itself Sends Nothing
first :thank you delcom5 for your reply.
i built a recursive function (tried calling it a sub as well - same problem)
that should builds nodes from DB to be added to a treeview.
and when i call the function from itself the node is sent as nothing (i do add byval of course).
don't have a clue why this shold happen, other parameters are sent just fine.
Recursive Function Fails To Return The Correct Value
I'm fairly new to VB. Just tried to implement a recursive function with Tree Class. The function is as follow:
Private Function bTreeSearch(ByRef tmpx As Node, _
ByVal result As Integer, _
ByVal expr As String) As Boolean
Dim isFound As Boolean
If (tmpx Is Nothing) Then
isFound = False
isFound = (tmpx.result = result)
If Not isFound Then
If result < tmpx.result Then
bTreeSearch tmpx.Left, result, expr
bTreeSearch tmpx.Right, result, expr
bTreeSearch = isFound
When I ran through debug mode, I found out that when the function found the node with the same result and set isFound = True, on the way returning to the stack, ie. back to its previous copy, where isFound is False, it returns FALSE as the value of the first copy of the function rather then TRUE value of the second copy - I hope you understand what I am talking about.
My question is, how to make this recursive function to return the TRUE value (from the second copy of the function) as the function rolls back on the stack?
(still N00b) Recursive Function Doesn't Work
For some obscure reason an recursive function I build doesn't work:
Public Function D()
Dim TD As Integer
Dim XD As Integer
XD = 0
TD = D10
If TD = 10 Then
XD = TD + D
XD = TD
D = XD
D10 is a function that gives a random number between 1 and 10
What it must do is:
When D10 results in 10, then another D10 must be added:
If TD = 10 Then XD = TD + D
but for some reason VB doesn't 'step into' D and just gives the result '0'
At first I used If TD = 10 Then D = TD + D, which is shorter, but same result.
Any clue anyone?

Kill Function Problem!!
Im working on a program that deletes all the files from the WindowsTemp directory but when i use the

Kill "c:DirDir2*.*" and it works perfectly
But now i used the function like this: Kill "c:WindowsTemp*.*" and it gave me a path/file access error
Does anyone know why?, does it have anything to do with file attributes?
Please help me
Hi VB people. I am trying to write a program that cleans up my hard drive a little.
Unfortunately I am have trouble with my Kill function. For example: I want to delete all my .tmp files on my computer. I used the following command:
Kill("c:*.tmp /s") but when the program runs, it says Run-time error 53 : File not found.
What am I doing wrong?
Runtime Error 70 On Kill Function
I keep getting a runtime error of 70 on a kill function. I am using VB6 SP5, the app connects to multiple foxpro tables. I have closed all connections prior to executing the kill function. I am also using CLOSE before executing the Kill function to make certain that all files are closed.
I use the same code to delete files in four other directories with no problem. How do I correct this?
Using The Kill Function To Delete On Vista Machine
I'm updaing a program so it's MS Vista compatabile.
My application can check for updates over the internet. If an update is available, the application renames itself from appname.exe to appname2.exe and then downloads the new version. On the computer reboot, the new version runs and it SHOULD automatically delete the appname2.exe using:
kill & app.path & "myappname.exe"
This process ran fine in XP.
In vista, under the admin account, the software renames and downloads without any problems and no vista prompts. However, when the computer is rebooted to the admin account, the appname2.exe is not deleted at that time. I've got permissions as it's the admin account...

VB App Not Closing Fully
Is there a way of telling what is keeping my VB app open? I try closing it by calling the Unload on the main form like I always do and the form goes away but the app is still as a process.
I have done this by just opening it and right then trying to close where it does nothing with no other forms. And still happens. No timers or anything.
Is there any way of forcing it to close? Any way to see whats holding it open?

Why Won't My Program Fully Exit?
For some reason, my program won't exit fully. I've compiled it and when it's ran, it seems that I can exit it fine, but when you open up the Control + Alt + Delete tab on XP, you can still see the program running. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the Inet control (I'm using it to get and post the source code of websites in my program) While it's connecting and retrieving data, is when I can't seem to exit the program.

My Program Never Fully Closes
The most likely reason that your program keeps on running is that you are not closing it properly. The way to do that is to have a routine that loops through the Forms collection and unloads all forms. That routine should be run from the QueryUnload event of any form that the user can close. You should also never use End.

ok this aint' the real code but it uses shell, so when the format has been completed or whatever the shell command was, how can I tell it to proceed with the next command after the previous command has been fully completed?
