get date file created

get date file created


Is there a way in labview to get the date that a file is created, the file/directory info vi returns when a file was modified. I was wondering if there was a vi to get a timestamp of when the file was created, like when you right click a file in windows and the properties show the date that the file was created.

Thank you,

Re: get date file created

Unfortunately, there is not built in Vi that can give you the file creation date. You can still retrieve the file creation date by making a few calls to KERNEL32.DLL. There is an example implementation on the discussion forums that should be helpful located here.
