Actually, there's a simpler way to do that and it is available in the library itself. If you look at CloudBlobContainer.ListBlobs method, it accepts two parameters:
- prefix: This is the name of your directory. If it is a nested directory, you will need to specify the full path e.g. myfolder/mysubfolder.
useFlatBlobListing: Setting this value to true will ensure that only blobs are returned (including inside any sub folders inside that directory) and not directories and blobs.
var account = new CloudStorageAccount(new StorageCredentials(accountName, accountKey), true);
var blobClient = account.CreateCloudBlobClient();
var container = blobClient.GetContainerReference("blob-container-name");
var blobs = container.ListBlobs(prefix: "container-directory", useFlatBlobListing: true);
You will get a list of all blobs belonging in the "container-directory" in blobs variable.
Hope this helps!!
