Folder/File Picker

Posted 14 days ago by Avatar Miguel A.

Hi,

a folder / file picker similar to a textbox but with path validation would be great. In combination with a file / folder button to choose it from Windows explorer.

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the suggestion.  We'll write it down.  Do you think this kind of control might be better to have in Editors or Shell?

Good question. In my scenario I use it in a settings menu for the customer to define where things will be stored. Editors seem to fit more in my opinion as its just a small control for path validation (i.e. doubleeditbox is only a numeric control for double validation) with the possiblity to choose the location via Win32 dialogs. Of course it has something to do with flie directories but unless you want to make something bigger out of it, I think Shell wouldn't be a better choice.
