network file path

Postby schoissi » Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:47 pm

hi all,
if i can access a directory on another pc via the normal windows file browser,
i should also be able (regrading access rights, user rights, etc.) to access this directory path from within widget designer?

for example via script:
WDTextboxToFile

how do i have to define the network path before the directory path?
for example, local it would be:
C:\coolux\content\projects\xmltest.xml

what do i have to add for the other pc on the network, before the C:\..... ?

anything i should watch/look out for?

thx,
best,
Roman

Did you try the IP?

when sharing of the specific folder is enabled
(advanced sharing, in folder properties...)
you get a network path for this folder,
for example: \\RSNPC\testfolder
(RSNPC is the computer name...)

you can than read/write this folder from any PC in the network that has access to it...

in WD, the command would be:
WDTextboxTofile(1,\\RSNPC\testfolder\testfile.txt)

haven't tried IP yet :-)
thx Benni!

best,
Roman
