#2399 closed Bug (No Bug)

FileOpenDialog - Function constructor - bug ?

Reported by: mlipok Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


in FileOpenDialog
the constructor is described that:

FileOpenDialog ( "title", "init dir", "filter" [, options = 0 [, "default name" [, hwnd]]] )

is this properly ?

maybe this is better ?

FileOpenDialog ( "title", "init dir", "filter" [, options = 0 [, default name="" [, hwnd]]] )

I see a similar situation in

FileSetTime ("file pattern", "time" [, type = 0 [, recurse = 0]])

However, in this case, the parameter "time" is mandatory, as opposed to the "default name", which is optional.

The first example is definitely written wrong, the second one (FileSetTime) is correctly written.

So it looks like, it should be changed in the documentation.

It's not documented as default name being "", so it shouldn't be added as an optional parameter in the syntax example.

So still there is some discrepancy, because the parameter description is written clearly:

default name [optional] Suggested file name for the user to open. Default is blank ("").

Unless I'm wrong.
