    Add comment     W32 Constants      Translate this page
The RemoveDirectory function deletes an existing empty directory. To recursively delete files and subdirectories in a directory, use the SHFileOperation function.
Code examples:
Declaration:
BOOL RemoveDirectory(
  LPCTSTR lpPathName   // directory name
);
FoxPro declaration:
DECLARE INTEGER RemoveDirectory IN kernel32;
    STRING lpPathName
Parameters:
lpPathName
[in] Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the path of the directory to be removed. The path must specify an empty directory, and the calling process must have delete access to the directory
Return value:
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero
Usage:
cPathName = "C:\Temp\aa" 
? RemoveDirectory(cPathName)
My comment:
To recursively delete the files in a directory, use the SHFileOperation function.
