FileOpenDialog via TCP ?!

5 posts in this topic

Is this possible?

Or are there any other comparable functions?

I just need some sort of GUI where i can select a file on a remote PC over TCP...

Sending the file is no problem :) just "select" it on the other pc by myself.

I did a fileListToArray and then ArrayToString..

On the other side an StringSplit

But thats not beatiful ;)

Any ideas?

##EDIT

Maybe making a "copy" of the directory that has been sent to me via TCP

every copied file is just a new file with nothing inside it.

So you have the dirs and the files...

It takes some time and maybe a recursive search (subdirs) but you could then use the fileOpenDialog :)

May this be the best idea?

What about browsing a mapped network folder? You can use DriveMapAdd() to map it to your local PC.

Does this work over the internets?

Well, probably not unless you're in a VPN...

Otherwise I guess the Idea of sending the Directory contents as string is a good start.

To lower the traffic I would just send the contents of the current directory. But then again you'd need to write your own "OpenFile" Gui.
