IDrive.DriveType Property
« on: July 14, 2008, 05:22:42 AM »

The following code illustrates the use of the DriveType property:

JScript

Code: [Select]
function ShowDriveType(drvpath)
{
   var fso, d, s, t;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   d = fso.GetDrive(drvpath);
   switch (d.DriveType)
   {
      case 0: t = "Unknown"; break;
      case 1: t = "Removable"; break;
      case 2: t = "Fixed"; break;
      case 3: t = "Network"; break;
      case 4: t = "CD-ROM"; break;
      case 5: t = "RAM Disk"; break;
   }
   s = "Drive " + d.DriveLetter + ": - " + t;
   return(s);
}

VBScript

Code: [Select]
Function ShowDriveType(drvpath)
   Dim fso, d, t
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set d = fso.GetDrive(drvpath)
   Select Case d.DriveType
      Case 0: t = "Unknown"
      Case 1: t = "Removable"
      Case 2: t = "Fixed"
      Case 3: t = "Network"
      Case 4: t = "CD-ROM"
      Case 5: t = "RAM Disk"
   End Select
   ShowDriveType = "Drive " & d.DriveLetter & ": - " & t
End Function


PowerBASIC

Code: [Select]
FUNCTION ShowDriveType (BYVAL drvPath AS STRING) AS STRING

   LOCAL fso AS IFileSystem
   LOCAL d AS IDrive
   LOCAL t AS STRING
   
   fso = NEWCOM "Scripting.FileSystemObject"
   d = fso.GetDrive(UCODE$(drvPath))
   SELECT CASE d.DriveType
      CASE 0: t = "Unknown"
      CASE 1: t = "Removable"
      CASE 2: t = "Fixed"
      CASE 3: t = "Network"
      CASE 4: t = "CD-ROM"
      CASE 5: t = "RAM Disk"
   END SELECT
   FUNCTION = "Drive " & ACODE$(d.DriveLetter) & ": - " & t

END FUNCTION
