display folder contents within gui

9 posts in this topic

This may be a dumb question but is there any way to either display a list of folders within a gui and open any item within those folders?

I can't resist... the answer is "yes" :rolleyes: .

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Hi,

Here's a starting example for 1 folder; see the include files, and Helpfiles for details? ("Explorer" in my links for further folders etc?)

;FileArraySelect.au3
#include<file.au3>
#include<array.au3>;;Select  a file, Click "Text Selected " Button
_ArrayDisplay(_FileListToArray(@ScriptDir, "*.txt", 1)); GUI ;Click "Close" Button
local $ar_ClipName = StringSplit(ClipGet(), "|"),$s_fileName=StringTrimRight(@ScriptDir & "\" & $ar_ClipName[2] ,1)
ShellExecute($s_fileName, "", @ScriptDir, "edit")

thank you for your help, I have gotten that far actually, what my problem is I don't see a way to open the files within my gui, without hard coding each file. I need it to list the file in a particular folder then open that file, just as it would if I were viewing the file in explorer

Hi,

1. What do you mean by "I have gotten that far"? - can you show me where you are up to (ie current working script), and

2. explain better what you mean?

3. Does not even my example, (or a modification so you don't need to exit the GUI for the answer!) give you a "soft/ dynamic-coded " answer still?

4. Are you saying you still have a problem, or what I have shown you, plus modification, will be what you want?

5. Did you include in the information I gave, looking at the link from Holger as described above?

6. is that [Holger] type of Explorer what you need to modify?

7. Where are you up to and what help do you you still need?

8. I am not sure if you even got my script to run and open a file after selecting one in "ArrayDisplay" - do you realise it does that?

Thanks, Randall

I think he meant that there will be a Gui, and in this gui will be somthing like tree view, and be able to expand any folder with files that in that folder....

But, mattfaust, my self and randallc can not geus (we can only try :rambo: ), please explain in details what exactly do you need... look the randallc's post, he wrote a lot more then you, and you need this (i gues), not him :rolleyes: - we only trying to help.
