C# - Get Files from Folder / Directory & bind to Asp.net Gridview in C#, VB.NET

Apr 20, 2013
Introduction:

Here I will explain how to get files from folder or directory and bind to Gridview in asp.net using C#, VB.NET.

Description:

In previous articles I explained create zip files in asp.net, Delete files from uploaded folder in asp.net, create/delete directory in asp.net, Joins in SQL Server and many articles relating to Gridview, SQL ,jQuery,asp.net, C#,VB.NET. Now I will explain how to get files from folder and bind to Gridview in asp.net using C#, VB.NET.

To display files from folder in Gridview we need to write the code like as shown below

C# Code


string[] filesPath = Directory.GetFiles(Server.MapPath("~/SampleFiles/"));
List<ListItem> files = new List<ListItem>();
foreach (string path in filesPath)
{
files.Add(new ListItem(Path.GetFileName(path)));
}
gvDetails.DataSource = files;
gvDetails.DataBind();
VB Code


Dim filesPath As String() = Directory.GetFiles(Server.MapPath("~/SampleFiles/"))
Dim files As New List(Of ListItem)()
For Each path__1 As String In filesPath
files.Add(New ListItem(Path.GetFileName(path__1)))
Next
gvDetails.DataSource = files
gvDetails.DataBind()

If you want to check it in complete example write the following code


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Get files from folder & bind to gridview in c#.net</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:Button ID="btnGetFiles" Text="Get Files From Folder" runat="server" onclick="btnGetFiles_Click" />
<asp:GridView ID="gvDetails" CellPadding="5" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
<Columns>
<asp:BoundField DataField="Text" HeaderText="FileName" />
</Columns>
<HeaderStyle BackColor="#df5015" Font-Bold="true" ForeColor="White" />
</asp:GridView>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
Now in code behind add the following namespaces

C# Code


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.IO;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
Once you add namespaces write the following code in code behind


// insert files in folder
protected void btnGetFiles_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
BindGridview();
}
// Bind Data to Gridview
protected void BindGridview()
{
string[] filesPath = Directory.GetFiles(Server.MapPath("~/SampleFiles/"));
List<ListItem> files = new List<ListItem>();
foreach (string path in filesPath)
{
files.Add(new ListItem(Path.GetFileName(path)));
}
gvDetails.DataSource = files;
gvDetails.DataBind();
}
VB.NET Code


Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Partial Class VBCode1
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
' insert files in folder
Protected Sub btnGetFiles_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
BindGridview()
End Sub
' Bind Data to Gridview
Protected Sub BindGridview()
Dim filesPath As String() = Directory.GetFiles(Server.MapPath("~/SampleFiles/"))
Dim files As New List(Of ListItem)()
For Each path__1 As String In filesPath
files.Add(New ListItem(Path.GetFileName(path__1)))
Next
gvDetails.DataSource = files
gvDetails.DataBind()
End Sub
End Class
