I am trying to path to a folder with all the objects and scripts using jscript. I plan to click on a file in the working folder and have the jscript remove the file leaving the path to the folder. i used the split method and us '\' to seperate the different folders. The '\' generates a error "unterminated string constant" when i try to compile it.


Right now i select the a file in the folder I want to use and remove the file name.


can anyone help me

This should do it for you:


function StripPath(Str)
{
var pos = Str.lastIndexOf('\\');
if (pos > 0)
{
return Str.substring(0, pos + 1);
}
return Str;
}


Remember that '\' is an escape character so to actually get a \ you need to use '\\'.

Also be aware that JScript uses a single quote to begin and terminate a string.
