RequestFile$Archives Forums/BlitzPlus Programming/RequestFile$
I am writing a app, I call the RequestFile$ and I want it
to recall the last dir I used. For example when I save a
project I want RequestFile$ to open up the window and show
the last dir and the Name of the file in the text box. When I call RequestFile$ for when I want to load a picture
which is in another dir. I want RequestFile$ to remeber that dir, open it, and then show the file name of the last pic I loaded? In the current state that I am understanding this command It won't do it. It just opens up the last dir it was at, even if I try to set the dir to point into someother folder. Can anyone help me with this?
Much Thanks in advance
| I don't know how you can put the name of the last file|
in the textbox but you can chose the dir which you want
to show first simply with ChangeDir. little example
cur_dir = CurrentDir()
file = ReadFile("lastsaveddir.dat")
dir = ReadLine(file)
save_file = RequestFile$("Choose File ...",1)
works fine at my b+
| I tried your code. What format is the "lastsaveddir.dat" I tried changeing the changedir to different folders and such manually |
e.g "c:" "c:\program files"
then I use the request command and no change.
still recalls the last dir I used in the requestfile$
Any More Suggestions?
| what version do you have?|
I've got 1.37 and it works correct
| I have version 1.37|
If someone that have more know how than me write a section
of code to do the following
click one button and the requestfile$ will open to first folder(designated by you).
click button two and the requestfile$ will open to other
folder(designated by you)
The reason for this Is that I have an app the loads your main project( the load project button). Then another button
imports a picture. If you are like me you put all the pictures in one folder so that you can find them all in one place. Now when I go to load another project. requestfile$ recalls the picture folder not the project folder.
If anyone can help please post the code cuz I can't get it to work here:(Tried everything I can think of, but I might be looking over some simple thing.
Thank You for your time.
| here is the code I did and it just recalls the first folder I double clicked in.|
ChangeDir "c:\ati" ; change to whatever you want
RequestFile$("first folder") ; double click on a file
ChangeDir "c:\gba" ; change to whatever you want
RequestFile$("second folder") ; this recalls first folder:(
