About This File


_cFileSelectFolder() is intended as a replacement for native FileSelectFolder() for selecting folders: It implements the left pane of FileSelectFolder(), and goes beyond FileSelectFolder() in several ways.

•    It is user friendly and designed to be easy to use;
•    New folder, Delete folder and Rename folder controls are optional;
•    Its GUI can be placed anywhere, including centred on another window;
•    Neither needs nor uses CLSIDs;
•    Checks calling parameters rigorously, with the user choosing either to show error messages in a dialog or to set @error and return them to the caller;
•    For local and mapped drives, accepts file specifications with drives that can be drive letters, drive labels, or both,
•    For local and mapped drives, always returns drive letter:\ ...\ so its output is compatible with native AutoIt functions.
•    For UNC paths, returns \\computer\share\...\
•    For unmapped drives on computers on the network,  offers a shortcut to shares.
•    Selecting a treeview item to be highlighted initially is specified in a user-friendly way, including a diagnostic for when the user gets it wrong
•    Because it can be called with many arguments, a user can show a list of the arguments / parameters and their values

The root of the treeview can be:
•    The Desktop hierarchy with Desktop at the top
•     Partial Desktop hierarchy with any other Desktop item at the top, with or without local/mapped drives and file folders, or remote shares and file folders (as appropriate),
•     Local/mapped drives and file folders, or
•    Remote shares and folders.

The script and example scripts are in the zip file. Documentation beyond what is in the UDF header is  in the PDF file,   cFileSelectFolder 1_6_1.pdf

Comments and suggestions are most welcome.
