    • Enum Constant Detail


        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG SIMPLE_IDLIST
        Build a simple IDList (PIDL) This value can be used when you want to retrieve the file system path but do not specify this value if you are retrieving the localized display name of the folder because it might not resolve correctly.

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG NOT_PARENT_RELATIVE
        Gets the folder's default path independent of the current location of its parent. KF_FLAG_DEFAULT_PATH must also be set.

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG DEFAULT_PATH
        Gets the default path for a known folder. If this flag is not set, the function retrieves the current-and possibly redirected-path of the folder. The execution of this flag includes a verification of the folder's existence unless KF_FLAG_DONT_VERIFY is set.
      • INIT

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG INIT
        Initializes the folder using its Desktop.ini settings. If the folder cannot be initialized, the function returns a failure code and no path is returned. This flag should always be combined with KF_FLAG_CREATE.
      • NO_ALIAS

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG NO_ALIAS
        Gets the true system path for the folder, free of any aliased placeholders such as %USERPROFILE%, returned by SHGetKnownFolderIDList and IKnownFolder::GetIDList. This flag has no effect on paths returned by SHGetKnownFolderPath and IKnownFolder::GetPath. By default, known folder retrieval functions and methods return the aliased path if an alias exists.

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG DONT_UNEXPAND
        Stores the full path in the registry without using environment strings. If this flag is not set, portions of the path may be represented by environment strings such as %USERPROFILE%. This flag can only be used with SHSetKnownFolderPath and IKnownFolder::SetPath.

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG DONT_VERIFY
        Do not verify the folder's existence before attempting to retrieve the path or IDList. If this flag is not set, an attempt is made to verify that the folder is truly present at the path. If that verification fails due to the folder being absent or inaccessible, the function returns a failure code and no path is returned. If the folder is located on a network, the function might take a longer time to execute. Setting this flag can reduce that lag time.
      • CREATE

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG CREATE
        Forces the creation of the specified folder if that folder does not already exist. The security provisions predefined for that folder are applied. If the folder does not exist and cannot be created, the function returns a failure code and no path is returned. This value can be used only with the following functions and methods:
        • SHGetKnownFolderPath
        • SHGetKnownFolderIDList
        • IKnownFolder::GetIDList
        • IKnownFolder::GetPath
        • IKnownFolder::GetShellItem

        Introduced in Windows 7: When running inside an app container, or when providing an app container token, this flag prevents redirection to app container folders. Instead, it retrieves the path that would be returned where it not running inside an app container.
      • ALIAS_ONLY

        public static final ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG ALIAS_ONLY
        Introduced in Windows 7. Return only aliased PIDLs. Do not use the file system path.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG c : ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static ShlObj.KNOWN_FOLDER_FLAG valueOf(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
