FileSel::Set does not appear to work [message #15654] Fri, 02 May 2008 10:34 Go to next message

Hi,

The FileSel::Set() does not appear to work correctly as of 2008.1beta if FileSel::ExecuteOpen() is used. The directory is correctly set, but the requested filename does not end up in the file field. FileSel::Set() works as expected though when FileSel::ExecuteSaveAs() is used.

I am afraid it is only supposed to work with SaveAs...

It would be of great benefit in certain applications to have it work in normal Open... situations too. Imagine a user of an application program manually working through a set of cryptically named files in alphabetical order... OK, having the previously processed file pre-selected in the dialog when opening the next would help quite a bit.

(The windows platform file dialog does this.)

Unfortunately, I could not see to the depths required to make this work in FileSel code.

I also believe Open mode should automatically select file set from outside of FileSel dialog...

Sorry for posting in this rather old thread, but I've just came across the same problem as Tom1. I believe there should be a way to preset the filename in FileSel.

I kinda expect it to work in applications. It often happens to me, that I save many similar files differing just in suffix. I believe it wouldn't hurt usability in any way, it can only help sometimes.

Or is there any problem to implement it?

I believe Save always worked. The question is about Load...

I can add some "Preselect" field, if requested...

I'm sorry for unclear formulation, SaveAs always worked perfectly. What I meant to say was that it would help when opening files differing only in suffixes.

One more example where I would use preselected filename came to my mind: Suppose I have an application which handles some data file and configuration file telling it what to do with those data. Now if user already opened configuration file, it would be a nice feature to preselect a corresponding file when opening the data. (For example based on filename of configuration file - perhaps with a check that it exist).

Idea with Preselect field sounds good to me. If you could implement it I would really aprreciate it. Just hope it's not too much work, I wouldn't want to distract you from more important things Rolling Eyes
