FileOpenDialog is doing nothing?

Recommended Posts


I've had a bit of a search around, but no one else seems to have reported this issue, so it must be something I'm doing wrong.

At first I noticed a FileOpenDialog line I'd just written into a new script seemed to be ignored.

To test, I made a new one-liner with the following code in it;

FileOpenDialog("Test Title", "C:\", "*.*")

And it just runs, then exists with a 0 return code. No dialog. Am I missing something?

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Users\User\Documents\AU3\FileOpenTest.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3" /UserParams    
+>09:04:41 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.    Environment(Language:0409  Keyboard:00000809  OS:WIN_7/  CPU:X64 OS:X64)
>Running AU3Check (  from:C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3
+>09:04:41 AU3Check ended.rc:0
>Running:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "C:\Users\User\Documents\AU3\FileOpenTest.au3"    
+>09:04:41 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0
>Exit code: 0    Time: 1.882

I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64 if that makes any difference at all, and just re-downloaded and installed SciTE from here, just in case.

FileOpenDialog("Test Title", "C:\", "(*.*)") you forgot (*.*)

Many times you need to think like hobby-bob:')

Am I missing something?

Yes, the file mask needs to be in () - the preceding text is optional. So this will work:

FileOpenDialog("Test Title", "C:\", "(*.*)")

All clear? :)


Edit: Wrong button - too soon! ;)

D'oh - yes - sorry - and thanks. Knew it was something silly I'd missed - I even checked the help file and didn't spot that!

Cheers. Solved.
