Access private files in app's hidden area
« on: September 18, 2012, 06:26:55 AM »
Is there a way to access, create and operate on files within the private area of my app so others cannot see them?
I don't mean on the sdcard but in the hidden area.

Hello

Yes, to do this you will need the full path to the private folder - use the InternalPathFN function
This gives the path without the trailing '/'.

eg
Code: [Select]
Put InternalPathFN into fpath
Once you have this path then your app can use HAC's file commands just as if the folder fpath were a standard folder.

By the way, there is also DatabasePathFN - this gives the path to the database folder inside the above mentioned private folder.
