aphesia,

For files use FileOpenDialog.

For folders use FileSelectFolder.

Save the function return in a variable and then use IniWrite to put it into an ini file.

FileOpenDialog and FileSelectFolder will do the trick.

Edit: Melba23 is faster than me.

Thanks.. fileselectfolder was exactly what i was looking for (well a dialog for files & folder at the same time would be even better but its fine :huh2:)

however, when doing multi-selects, the ini looks like this:

test1=C:\Users\Patrick\Documents\AutoIt|script.au3|Settings.ini

but i would need it like this:

test1=C:\Users\Patrick\Documents\AutoIt\script.au3
test2=C:\Users\Patrick\Documents\AutoIt\Settings.ini

@edit: on top of that i would need every line from the ini to be written into an editbox but when deleting a line or editing a line inside the editbox, it should also change inside the ini. I guess i need to use an array here?

Ok, so you expect it all to be coded for you or did you need help with what you already have tried?

aphesia,

Look at StringSplit - then you can separate the various parts of the returned string and then concatenate them when writing the ini file. ;)

a dialog for files & folder at the same time would be even better but its fine )

You could use my ChooseFileFolder UDF to do both things with the same dialog. :huh2:

Edit: Typnig!

I wrote this... but i think is useless now :\

$var = FileOpenDialog($message, @WindowsDir & "\", "Images (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 1 + 4 )

If @error Then
    MsgBox(4096,"","No File(s) chosen")
Else
    $OnlyFileName = StringSplit($var,"\")
    $OnlyFolder = StringTrimRight($var,StringLen($OnlyFileName[ubound($OnlyFileName)-1]))
    MsgBox(4096,"","You chose " & $OnlyFileName[ubound($OnlyFileName)-1])
    MsgBox(4096,"","You chose " & $OnlyFolder)
EndIf
sorry i arrive later...

@Jobs: no not really i was just looking for Stringsplit and other commands which i didnt know/couldnt find.. and propably an idea on how to do that stuff with the editbox & the line-by-line read/write from an .ini

@melba23: thanks alot.. stringsplit seems to be exactly what i was looking for.. will try it out as soon as i come home from work :huh2: also that udf sounds great !

@monoscout: np still you helped me out cause i didnt knew how to use multiple options (e.g. 1 and 4) in the fileopendialog.. but you just showed me how to ;D

$var = FileOpenDialog($message, @WindowsDir & "\", "Images (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 1 + 4 )
