i was wandering if there any good tutorials or books on setting up code to allow he user to browse through folders to select the file she wants to work with.
I'm just starting on it and have no idea where even to start.
Any input is welcome,
I've looked through this FAQ > How do I... (Level 3) > Accessing a directory and all the files within it, but I don't really undrstand what it is talking about.
If you want the common file browser dialog look up the OPENFILENAME structure and GetOpenFileName().
If you want to manually check look up FindFirstFile() and FindNextFile().
Using Common Dialog Boxes
You can also search these boards with "OPENFILENAME" for more code examples.
I've taken a look at the forums, and there are a lot of people with the same problem it seems. I'll keep researching.
But just so I understand correctly. If I want to have the user say click a button and open up a dialog box with say "My Computer" directory or my Documents, would I have to call GetOpenFileName() and the rest of the stuff under the executable events for that button?
I guess this has turned into a Windows thread, move it if you see fit, pls.
