Sending filename to open dialog

Recommended Posts


I am processing a list of files using FileFind* functions. I want to run a program, use the open dialog, and specify the filename in the open dialog. The problem is if I do Send($filename) it takes awhile to write the filename character by character.

Is there a way to send the filename as a chunk rather than character by character. The only method I can think of is using

the clipboard, but I would like to avoid that. ALso I don't actually want to use Send since I will need to escape filenames

with characters that have '+' or '!' or '^' etc.

Any suggestions how I could go about doing this?

If you can retrieve the control information you can use

ControlSetText ( "title", "text", controlID, "new text" [, flag] )
