Displaying hidden files with FileOpenDialog()

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

I wrote a small utility some time ago to locate and copy Hunspell dictionaries to be used by a third party application, all very simple. Recently a fellow asked me to provide a way for it to work under Wine. Well, it does in fact, but fail to list files which top directory has a hidden attribute. Functions like FileOpenDialog fails to display targeted directory content. Is that a way to overcome this? I mean, can I use a flag or a work around to also display hidden files? Thanks for your insights.

My ChooseFileFolder UDF (look in my sig for the link) allows you to hide/show hidden files - that might help you. :)

Also this could work :

; Save the previous value before writing in the registry
Local $iHiddenState = Number( RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "Hidden") )

; Show hidden files
If NOT $iHiddenState Then RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "Hidden", "REG_DWORD", 1)

FileOpenDialog("test", "C:\", "*.* (all files)")

; Hide hidden files
If NOT $iHiddenState Then RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "Hidden", "REG_DWORD", 0)
