Obscure Folder File List Problem


I am new to the images being stored inside of xMII, so there may be some unknown (to me) NW mechanism at work here.

I am storing original copies of default images in a ProjectA/WEB folder named images.

When moving some of the files to new folder locations, I first use the Get File List action block and map the folder to "web://ProjectA/images/" and to some Mask such as "*.png" or

"*7DayChart.png" or

"First*.png". I have several images of each type specified in the images folder so each time this executes, it should return a list of images.

"*.png" returns all the png type images in the folder.

"*7DayChart.png" returns all the 7DayChart.png images in the folder.

"ProcessADailyChart.png" returns ProcessADailyChart.png


When I run "First*.png", I get none of the three image files there. I also tried it with

"First.png" with the same incorrect empty list. Also

"irst.png" does not work. Also tried using "%irst%.png" just to be safe. Same results.

It is not a big problem as this is only used in development, but it is odd behavior. Has anyone else run into this issue?




And now this window here is deleting the asterisk and bolding the quoted string in random places. What the heck is going on? Maybe the random substitution is also going on in the Get File List?
