FileSelectFolder doesnt show files inside folder


Recommended Posts

Good day,

I use FileSelectFolder and on selecting a Folder, I cannot be sure if it contains the image files (.jpg) I am looking for!

This is my script:


#include <Array.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <Crypt.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

#include <String.au3>


Func Choisir()
    Local Const $sMessage = "Please, Select a Folder to Copy and Analyze:"

   Global $sFileSelectFolder = FileSelectFolder($sMessage, "",10,@ScriptDir) 

    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No folder was selected.")
        $bb=MsgBox(4100, "", "You chose the following Folder:" & @CRLF & $sFileSelectFolder)
        If $bb=7 then Choisir()

You could use FileOpenDialog + @WorkingDir although you would need to select at least one file.

#include <FileConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    Local Const $sMessage = "Select a single file of any type."
    Local $sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog($sMessage, @ScriptDir & "\", "JPG (*.jpg)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(4096, "", "You chose the following folder:" & @CRLF & @WorkingDir)

Take a look at my ChooseFileFolder UDF (the link is in my sig) as it allows you to search for specific file types within your directory tree.

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:

GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
