Browse to file and capture just file name

Recommended Posts

Blip

I'm trying to have a dialog open that can browse to a file location and grab a file name, like "Program.exe".

FileOpenDialog is able to capture the full path + file name, like "C:\program files\program\program.exe" but I'm looking for a similar browse ability that gets and stores just the file name. I've looked through almost all the File functions and perhaps I've overlooked it but I can't find something that does this, I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

In a pinch I guess I can truncate the product of FileOpenDialog but I'd like to avoid that if possible. Thanks for any assistance.

You can split the full path by using function _PathSplit.

This'll make the truncating job a lot easier, wasn't aware of _PathSplit. I suppose this is a decent work around if no built in browse function does this already, thanks.
