Doubt about the "root dir" parameter in FileSelectFolder function
I'm trying to:
-Select a file in a folder (to store it to an ini file)
-Write the file on an ini
-Copy files to the folder selected by the user
instead of using FileOpenDialog then FileSelectFolder, I was wondering if it was possible to do the whole thing only with FileOpenDialog spliting the value returned in 2 variables. I got something like that for the first part (select a file and store it to an ini file)
Local $message = "Select your executable" Local $pathk = FileOpenDialog($message, "C:" & "", "Select the executable you want to terminate (*.exe)", 1 + 4) Local $path = "None" ;ici je dois copier les fichiers $split = StringSplit($pathk, "\") $tokill = $split[$split] If @error Then MsgBox(4096, "", "No Executable chosen") Else MsgBox(4096, "", $pathk & " Will be terminated " & @LF & @LF & "Press OK to EXIT ") IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\path.ini", "Torun", "path", $path) IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\path.ini", "Tokill", "pathk", $tokill) EndIf As you can see I manage to split the value returned by FileOpenDialog to have only the exe but as a noob I can't manage to get the path to copy the files I need to the same path.
Any idea? ^^
I've abandoned the FileSelectFolder() approach and rolled my own UDF to create a dialog containing the folder list in a ListView, which seems to work fine. It's also a better fit to our requirements: we don't really want the user wandering around in the folder-selection dialog, plus the UDF displays some associated info for each folder in a second column. Thanks again to the forum members who took a look at this.
I'm writing an installer script that needs to run as Administrator so it can, e.g., write files into protected directories. The problem is that when I call FileSelectFolder(), there is a 60-second delay before the dialog appears. If I run as an ordinary user (in the Administrators group), there's no delay, but I don't think that will work: for one thing, the installer needs to create a symbolic link, which a member of the Administrators group can't do unless the program is elevated. (This is Win 7 x64.)
(The installer will be run using an Admin account; the other user accounts are locked down and don't have access to the filesystem, the Start menu, Computer, etc. - it's a turnkey system.)
Any idea what causes the delay? And is there a way around it?
My program starts by asking the user to select or create a directory to copy files to. FileSelectFolder won't let me type in a directory name and have it created. DirCreate doesn't have the GUI interface to allow the user to select a directory. Is there a method to display the File Tree and let the user either select an existing directory OR enter a directory name to add?
Hello, is there any way to achieve in current AutoIt versions old style looking FileSelectFolder, like in v.220.127.116.11?
I can't operate on COMs, maybe anyone knows the way, has a code?
It looked like this (attachement):
I don't like new style, some features don't work for me properly.
