Do you mean getting list of files in the directory? There is no standard function. Need scripted import or plug-in function.
No not really. When You open Explorer the filer of windows, or when You want to save a new document i windows, there is a suggested directory set in the dialog, lets call it "present directory".
I want to be able to set this directory from a string fetched from a textfield of record (post, row) in a database table.
In my case its a project table, each project saves its documents in different dierctories on the server. I wish to get rid of the burdon to set that manually, by always point to the right directory by default.
There is a function to GET the present directory as a string, but I cant fin the corresponding "SET(directory)"??
There is no feature setting default folder when open "save" dialog. It use "last used place" always.
But you seems having the folder path already specified in field, then how about
1) user input filename
2) script save to folder from text field, filename from user input, without dialog
I highly recommend the Troi File plug-in. The documentation is very easy to follow in the demonstration files provided. There is a trial version if you'd like to take it for a test drive!
Yes I have the folder specified in the record, different for each different record.
Sometimes I want to read already stored documents like word, excel, pics, and blueprints, sometimes add new ones.
Its never any info from the record itself that needs to be stored in that folder.
So what I really need is a method of changing windows pointer of "last used folder" if You wish...
Could Your suggestions help towards that? Pls elaborate further on Your suggestions.
