FileSelectFolder does not show entire path

Recommended Posts


Sorry, just disregard this post, I found out how to use the parameters correctly using empty double quotes...

( FileSelectFolder( "Select Output folder", "", 1 , $tempoutput_fullpath , $hStStGUI ) )

Hi there,

I am making a script where I can select a location for files for further processing. For instance I may first want to process files located in "C:UsersmeDesktopfilesseries1". I use the FileSelectFolder function to help select the folder. In my script, I initate the dialog with the same resulting path, so next time this folder is already selected as default. So far, so good.

However, next time, the I may want to process "C:UsersmeDesktopfilesseries2" and I would thus want to back up a level from the current path. But the dialog that appears only shows a tree beginning with the lowest level folder "series1" so I can't 'back out' by clicking to select the new folder.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
