Folder selection dialog

Folder selection dialog

  
Hello,

I need in my application a browse button that opens a folder selection dialog.
How can I do this in the agile platform?

Thanks in advance
Folder select dialog is not possible in browsers (it was possible [and very buggy] up to IE 5 If not mistaken but deprecated since)

Most of the folder selections availble are some kind of applet running, not a default html option, I don't think you will find any other way of doing it, but if you do please keep us posted :)

Best regards,

While browsing for some ideas to solve this i got to this page: http://www.tek-tips.com/faqs.cfm?fid=5201

Still needs an ActiveX to run, so if your users are running a Mac or Unix systems, that will probably won't work either

Hello Pedro,
Using javascript it's impossible. It is possible when using Active X but there are lot's of limitations
you can see a simple code for implementation here

Hello,

First of all, thank you to you both for your help.
But I still have a problem. Since I am newbie to the agile platform, I have no clue how to integrate any of your tips into my application.
Can you explain how to do it?

Thanks in advance

Hi Pedro,
You can do it by placing the code into a expression with expand content set to no.
I uploaded a sample OML with the code that I showed you yesterday, it only works in IE because of ActiveX elements and and you need to change the folder permissions in order to allow activeX to reach them
