The search pattern, e.g. "*.*. If it is null, or the empty string, all files are searched.
Members of the RECLS_FLAG enumeration, to alter the search. For example, RECLS_F_DIRECTORIES causes directories to be retrieved; RECLS_F_RECURSIVE causes the search to recurse all subdirectories of searchRoot

Return Value

Returns true if the set of matching entries was processed to completion, or false if it was cancelled


This static method conducts a search matching the given parameters, and calls the given delegate function for each matching item. The search is cancellable by means of return false from the delegate. The number of items reported is only those for which the delegate returned true; in other words, unvisited and cancelled entries are not counted.
