Working with inputs and outputs from a function RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there an easy way to read data from a function? Because I'm kind of new here and I'm working on an older version of .NET (namely .NET 2.0) and even though my source path is correct, it exists, but the function Directory.Exists(path)

    doesn't seem to recognize my folder. So I'm looking for a generic function that reads data from a folder and outputs them in a generic screen.

    P.S In case my question is too broad or it shows my level of expertise, a good book or a source for mobile development with .NET 2.0 and visual studio 2005

    Since the problem is out of the scope of UWP forum. I'll help you to move this thread to another forum that you could get more support there.

    Your question is very broad and does show your lack of programming training and experience.  There are many books that would help you learn how to use C# or Visual Basic (you don't even tell us what programming language).

    For Windows CE, consider one of Doug Bolings books (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=douglas+boling&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Adouglas+boling)

    NOTE:  There is no function to do what you want - you will need to write some code.
