Accessing .tag or just listing folders Swift

StevenWhitey New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find an answer. I am trying to list just folders in a table. When I do a listFolder call it gives me all the folders and files with a .tag. Is there any way to access that .tag or just list the folders? I know you can list files by using the Suffix but what about folders? Thanks for your help. Below is what I get back with my listFolder call.

 

cursor = "AAHIpnuEeMPvYAsZGaogNyLu0QCvyr6T5YnIK_2ZQDfObTzFEIaf4BKSdaJsgIxC82IirZgWfzvN41axn-jKmySsPHoXwGmn-mxsEKHgV_hOUHqIUQxURYlL2AzzbzcZNZvo3AKmlPDRGkLq3Ax6uvMmSN1ZdKg3QHoGIIeno_9Jn-DbrzZG3Qx8un1ekCASy00";

    entries =     (

                {

            ".tag" = folder;

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAAw";

            name = "Test Folder";

            "path_display" = "/Test Folder";

            "path_lower" = "/test folder";

        },

                {

            ".tag" = folder;

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAFw";

            name = "2nd folder";

            "path_display" = "/Test Folder/2nd folder";

            "path_lower" = "/test folder/2nd folder";

        },

                {

            ".tag" = folder;

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAHA";

            name = "Another Folder";

            "path_display" = "/Another Folder";

            "path_lower" = "/another folder";

        },

                {

            ".tag" = folder;

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAIA";

            name = "Photo Watch";

            "path_display" = "/Apps/Photo Watch";

            "path_lower" = "/apps/photo watch";

        },

                {

            ".tag" = folder;

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAHw";

            name = Apps;

            "path_display" = "/Apps";

            "path_lower" = "/apps";

        },

                {

            ".tag" = file;

            "client_modified" = "2016-11-01T22:37:58Z";

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAAAg";

            name = "Get Started with Dropbox.pdf";

            "path_display" = "/Get Started with Dropbox.pdf";

            "path_lower" = "/get started with dropbox.pdf";

            rev = 1502f5529;

            "server_modified" = "2016-11-01T22:37:58Z";

            size = 905827;

        },

                {

            ".tag" = file;

            "client_modified" = "2016-11-02T03:28:56Z";

            id = "id:EinVKuuPCRAAAAAAAAAABA";

            name = "8-3-Travel-Photo-3.jpg";

            "path_display" = "/Test Folder/8-3-Travel-Photo-3.jpg";

            "path_lower" = "/test folder/8-3-travel-photo-3.jpg";

            rev = 3502f5529;

            "server_modified" = "2016-11-02T03:28:56Z";

            size = 109879;

        }

You can filter Metadata objects by checking if they are FileMetadata or FolderMetadata (or DeletedMetadata) instances as shown here:

Can you share your code?

@ravisharma What are you looking for exactly? If you need to see how to distinguish between files and folders, that's in the README:

 

https://github.com/dropbox/SwiftyDropbox#response-handling-edge-cases

 

If you're looking for a sample for listing items, there are some examples here:

 

https://github.com/dropbox/PhotoWatch/blob/48df3b99b47f4a883703f7a4cd9512eb2a5c0cb2/PhotoWatch/ViewC...
https://stackoverflow.com/documentation/dropbox-api/412/listing-a-folder/1371/listing-the-root-folde...

 

Those only call listFolder though, so you'll need to make sure you call listFolderContinue too, as described in the second link.
