Check Folder Directory Exists Using VB.NET


 / Published in: VB.NET
 

I came across a permission issue when using the standard Directory.Exists() method, so I came up with another way to check if a Directory exists avoiding those permission issues. This works very well. It can be converted to C'#.

  1. Private Function DirectoryExists(ByVal sPath As String) As Boolean
  2.  
  3. Try
  4. If System.IO.Directory.GetDirectories(sPath).Length > 0 Then
  5. Return True
  6. End If
  7. Catch ex As Exception
  8. Return False
  9. End Try
  10.  
  11. Return False
  12.  
  13. End Function
