Hello,

Each time I open a FileSel dialog it starts from the root of my PC. Instead I would like to set the directory from where to start. I used the method BaseDir, for example:
	fs.BaseDir("C:\\MyApps\\Vega2\\souceVega");

In this case it starts from C:\\MyApps\\Vega2\\souceVega but I cannot move back from that level because the button dirup is disabled!
So I tried
   fs.dirup.Enable(); //fs.dirup.Enable(true); 
   fs.BaseDir("C:\\MyApps\\Vega2\\souceVega");

with no success. Any idea?

Moreover I would like to get my application directory to supply to FileSel but how can I get it?

I get the answer! here it is:

 	fs.dir <<= "C:\\MyApps\\Vega2\\souceVega";

So now remain the question about the application directory Smile

Hello,

Have you tried this?
fs.ActiveDir(".");

ActiveDir. But ActiveDir(".") is wrong, you should supply the real directory there, e.g. ActiveDir(GetCurrrentDirectory()).
