Hello sir/madam,
I am trying to delete a file using function DeleteFile. Preview pane is ON and the file is selected in windows explorer. When I call DeleteFile on this file, how could I get its status that file preview is seen in preview pane? Also how could I remove its preview and delete the file? I am new to c++ coding with windows. Please Suggest me functions to get preview status of a directory and to get whether a file is selected.
Thanks and regards,
Vishal V.

Solution 1

declare a global variable with boolean type and default value set to false.
Now when PreviewPane Is On and file is selected,set "True" to that global variable.
Then when u try to delete that file,check true/false for that variable,if true (means file is in pane and windows explorer) then delete otherwise not

Thanks for your reply. I am completely new to this type of coding. How could I get the PreviewPane status and file selection status using cpp code?
