Hello All


Is there an example/demo on using the Getfolder() function available?

There is an example for getfile() available but I did not see one for GetFolder()

Thanks for reading this request

You can call it in this way:

Code: Select all

cFolder:= GetFolder(cFromWhereToStart)
if !empty(cFolder)
  MsgInfo("You've selected folder: "+ cFolder)
endif

Please look at :

This this is simplest way to call function.

Full syntax is :

Code: Select all

GetFolder ( [<cTitle>] , [<cInitPath>], [<cInvalidDataMsg>], [<lNewFolderButton>] , [<lIncludeFiles>] , [<nCSIDL_FolderType>] , [<nBIF_Flags>] )--> cSelectedFolderName
As you can see all parameters are self-explanatory and possible values and meanings listed in the HMG_DOC. Further explanation and sample not required ( IMO ).

Happy HMG'ing
