Open and Save dialogs and directory

8 posts in this topic

Is it possible to set the directory that the open and save dialogs will point to via AutoIt?

For example, I'd like to call:

SetOpenSaveDir("c:\temp")

and when I choose Open... from the File menu, I'd like the open dialog to point to: c:temp

Thanks!!!!

Well, simply you could add this:

$dir = "C:\temp"
$var = FileOpenDialog("Open", $dir, "All files (*.*)", 1 + 4 )
:idiot:

edit: typos

like:

FileSaveDialog ( "title", "init dir", "filter" [, options [, "default name"]] )

?

Sorry, no, what I want to do is alter the director of the HOST program, not an Open or save Dialog that AutoIt creates.

In other words, I'd like to set the directory of the active frontmost application, then when I choose Open... or Save from the File menu of the active program, have that dialog point to the "right place".

i dont know if that's possible... i know it gets annoying when ya gotta click through 8 billion folders to get to the file you want to open or the destination you want to save to...

maybe someone else knows...?

What about the "init dir" part of it? (initial directory)

I tried this call, but no go:

FileChangeDir ( "path" )

Apparently it's possible since there are shareware programs that allow you can jump directly to a folder/file.
