Hi Autoitans,

There is one tough question for you. (May be not for you, guys!! ;))

I want to trap selected folder's full path in autoit.

Thanks & Regards,

Deepak

Have you tried the FileSelectFolder dialog? Try something like

$path = FileSelectFolder("Choose Folder","",7)

Thanks for your reply. ;)

I don't want choose folder from AutoIT.

For Example, I have selected a folder in Windows Explorer and I want to return name of that folder. Something tooltip like that....

Hope you understand! :D

Oh I see what you want now. That might be a bit harder. You could try getting the list of windows open from Shell.Application and get the paths for those. You would probably know the title so try something like this?

Psuedo-code:

$list = GetList("Shell.Application")
For $n = 1 To UBound($list) - 1
If GetName($list[$n]) = "Window's Name" Then
$path = GetPath($list[$n])
Endif
Next

Something like that. I know there are functions to do this I just don't know them right off.

You showed my right path.

May be ControlListView will help me doing this. I'll have a try.

More suggestions are always welcome ;)

It works for me:

$iIndex = ControlListView("[Class:CabinetWClass]", "", "SysListView321", "GetSelected")
If $iIndex = "" Then Exit MsgBox(48, "Error", "There is no selected items." & @LF & @LF & "OK ==> EXIT")

$sSelectedFolder = ControlListView("[Class:CabinetWClass]", "", "SysListView321", "GetText", $iIndex)
$sSelectedFullPath = StringReplace(ControlGetText("[Class:CabinetWClass]", "", "Edit1") & "\" & $sSelectedFolder, "\\", "\")

MsgBox(64, "Results", _
    StringFormat("Selected Index = %i\nFolder Name = %s\nFull Path = %s", $iIndex, $sSelectedFolder, $sSelectedFullPath))
