Using the following code on a Mac running MacOS 10.14 and Xojo 2019r2 my test app tells me that my alias is not an alias. The same happens in a version for 2019r1. The file exists, the Finder shows it to be an Alias, the app correctly shows the path to the original item but cannot detect that the Folderitem itself is an Alias. Am I doing something really stupid ?
Dim f, as FolderItem
If f.IsAlias Then
MessageBox("The FolderItem is an alias.")
MessageBox("The FolderItem is not an alias.")
