Determine Last Update Date of a File



We have had trouble with our interface picking up the wrong file.  The client thinks they have put the file in the right place, but the server is looking at a different file for some reason.  Placing the date/time in the standard output helps identify these situations.  Here is how you can do that:

Local JavaObject &javaFile;
Local JavaObject &javaFormat;

&javaFile = CreateJavaObject(“java.io.File”, “c:\temp\myFile.txt”);
&javaFormat = CreateJavaObject(“java.text.SimpleDateFormat”, “yyyy/MM/dd hh:mm:ss aa”);
MessageBox(0, ” “, 0, 0, File Timestamp: %1″, &javaFormat.format(&javaFile.lastModified()));
