deleting subfolders in share point server

sharepoint India
  • 15 years ago
    hi there,

    I am doing an application that will watch a particular directory /folder (FileSystemWatcher) and upload the files and folder that are added or modified in that directory to the share point server.

    Now,I want to delete a subfolder in the sharepoint server.

    Dim docLibPath As String = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("DocUploadPath")
    Dim thisProjectWeb As SPWeb = SPControl.GetContextWeb(context)
    thisProjectWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = True
    Dim parentfolder As SPFolder = thisProjectWeb.GetFolder(docLibPath)
    oldfolder = parentfolder.SubFolders(oldfoldername)

    it works fine if the oldfoldername=Firstfolder and returns error if the firstfolder contains any subfolder ie
    if oldfoldername=firstfolder/secondfolder.

    Can anyone pointout whats the error i am doing here.
