Modules: File Change Notification Component

Author(s)

The File Change Notification Component (FileChangeNotify) allows you to set up watches on one or more folders (optionally including the entire subfolder tree) so that any changes made to the folders result in a notification being sent back to you. The notification event depends on the kind of watch you've set up on a folder (for example, notify on size changes and creates) and contains information about the specific file that has been changed.

This component uses FindFirstChangeNotification, FindNextChangeNotification, and WaitForMultipleObjects API functions internally. Detailed information about each method and property can be obtained in VBA's Object Browser.

Please make sure you read the code distribution guidelines.

Current Build: 1.02.0004

Please provide any suggestions, comments, bug reports via email.
