If Exist FileSelectFile("like FileSelectFolder()") Then

5 posts in this topic

MsgBox(0, "You want", "AutoIT Function" & $answer) :)

Hi

I have trolled through the help files (and searched contents and forum) to no avail, so I now turn to the wealth of knowledge here.

is there any function within AutoIT allowing me to add a button in a window, enabling the user to click and browse to a file, and that file can then be used as a variable.

Apologies if I've missed something (I don't think I have)

Thanks in advance

Try "FileOpenDialog". Related functions often can be found in the helpfile - section "Related".

shornw,

You add the button into the GUI as normal and then get it to run FileOpenDialog - this returns a filename. :)

Here is a simple example: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Browse", 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            $sFileName = FileOpenDialog("Choose a file", @ScriptDir, "All (*.*)" )
            If $sFileName Then
                MsgBox(0, "File Name" , $sFileName)
            Else
                MsgBox(0, "Error", "No file chosen")
            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd
