6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have been trying to find a way to use FileOpenDialog or some other means to choose a folder through the Common File Dialog instead of a file. Like this Screenshot below:

I want to use this way so my users can look up UNC paths without having navigate for through the FileSelectFolder Dialog.

maybe you should look into making your own folder explorer, maybe using by Yashied.

hello jmon,

I looked into TVexplorer before posting and it will not work with what i'm trying to accomplish. Thank you for the reply thought!

kdf2883,

...with what i'm trying to accomplish

Then perhaps if you explained more clearly what it is that you are trying to accomplish, we might be able to offer better solutions. :)

For example, are you looking for a common dialog interface for selection of files and/or folders? If so perhaps my ChooseFileFolder UDF might be of interest. ;)

Ok what i'm trying to do is make a dialog in my screenshot for folders to use with Server shares and is FileSelectFolder does not support unc very well. You have to navigate through the network to find the server where as if I had the dialog above I will be able to just type the server path to browse the server shares. I did take a look into your UDF and it does not allow me to do what I want to do :( Thanks for the reply!

From what I gathered, autoit can't do what I posted above and I would have to convert to vb.net to do it :(. Thanks for the help though~
