|Target Version||5.0.4||Fixed in Version||5.0.4|
|Summary||0019100: Replacement for oFileObj.GetFile('x').ShortPath needed|
|Description||I didn't find any alternative in your source code for the ShortPath property of File object in old FileSystemObject.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||2650|
Can you please elaborate why do you need the "ShortPath" property and what exactly do you mean by this? Are you referring the abandoned 8.3 filename format with tilda?
Yes, I mean on the 8.3 filename format: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/language/reference/user-interface-help/shortpath-property
Some users reported that their media players supported only such filenames and I have it implemented in my add-ons.
||OK, added as app.filesystem.toShortPath in 220.127.116.1150|
||Looks liek working, but please note that most new HDDs formatted in Win 10/11 21H2 (especially m.2) have NTFS 8.3 naming disabled.|
||TEST NOTE: Settings noted in 0019215:0068667 can possibly influence feature behavior.|
