Default using filter in FileConnection's "list()" method

Please Login to Remove!


I wrote a piece of code to enumerate a folder's content, with the list() method of package.

This method can be used without any parmeters, or with a String as filter.

I want to filter to search only for some file's extentions, but I can't figure out how to do this.

If I use a simple filter like "*.jpg", this will work.

If I use some sort of other filter, like "*.jpg;*.png" this does not work (no Exception, but got 0 entries in the enumeration)

I tried many many style of "filter string":
"*.jpg;*.png", "*.jpg *.png", "*.jpg|*.png", whith parenthesis, with "&", "," etc, nothing works

Doeas anyone know how to achieve this ? (I don't want to loop within an array specifying all the extentions that I want to filter.
Best regards,
