        check for (".xml");
    }

    Re: Check Directory for xml file

    I got a problem

    I am using this as the argument

    Code:
                if (File.Exists(GameRef.GetDocumentsDirectory + @"\My Documents\My Games\RPGBXL" + "*.xml")) 
                {
                    manager.ChangeScreens(GameRef.PopUpScreenLoadFile);
                }
                else
                {
                    BeginException = true;
                }
    only problem is - IF there is a xml document there - Which there is, it still going to the exception

    Looks like you are missing a backslash at the end of your path
    Unless you are looking for RPGBXL*.xml
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.

    Pretty sure you can't pass a wild card to that method either. In the case of looking for any .xml file, use Directory.GetFiles.
