[GUI] FileSelect alternative - Customize / Restrict to a specific folder (20.03.2018)

07 Feb 2018, 07:11

Hi,

For my project EverFastAccess I needed a dialog able to select multiple files and folders.
The standard folder select dialog thus wasn't a fit so I decided to create a more flexible and configurable file/folder select dialog.

I hope this will benefit many :)

AHK GUI alternative to the FileSelectFile / FileSelectFolder dialogs
  • Allows more parameters/customization
  • Allows to restrict navigation within a specific folder
  • Allows selection of both files and folders

I am quite surprised I could not find such a script. I'm especially quite surprised it seems not available by Windows as standard as well :roll:
I wanted to have a GUI (TreeView and/or ListView) that allows user to naviagate folders and select a file WITHIN the specified folder.

I didn't want to apply dirty tricks to the fileselect standard dialog so I thought a complete AHK Gui could be a good solution.
So based on the ListView Main Example https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/command ... m#Examples here is my try!

Don't hesitate to post improvements or say anything ;)

Re: FileSelectFile style GUI you can restrict to a specific folder

07 Feb 2018, 12:12

UPDATE 07.02.2018 - 18h UTC+1
Function much improved !


-Have a better code structure
-Have nicer button and show "Select" button in a more adapted way
-Offer File filters
-Show folders only if select folders
-Propose folder creation (or not) via right clic
-Multi selection possible (returns the same as FileSelectFile)
-Examples improved

Would be great to improve documentation a bit though

Re: FileSelectFile style GUI you can restrict to a specific folder

Nice script, @DigiDon. Would you take a look at my small additions? My changes are on lines 7-8 and 82-83. The reason I added them is because the button text as provided wasn't meaningful for me.
I'm trying to get a Chr(29) in the button (↔) but haven't gotten there yet.
Spoiler
EDIT: Got rid of Transform, used Chr(), running AHK_H v1.1.27.06. Using Unicode for switch view button.

Code: Select all

UpArrow := Chr(24)
SwitchLeft := Chr("0x0021DA")
SwitchRight := Chr("0x0021DB")
and

Code: Select all

Re: FileSelectFile style GUI you can restrict to a specific folder

07 Feb 2018, 15:57

Thanks burque505 for the sugestion ;)

But finding perfect unicode characters is hard.
The one you suggest makes me think of On top and Enlarge.

I prefer
Image

Code: Select all

Gui, Add, Button, xm+10 w20 gFSSwitchView, % Chr(0x02630)
	Gui, Font, Bold
	Gui, Add, Button, x+5 w30 gFSPrevious, % Chr(0x2190)
But I think I would prefer to have some nice image button with hover effect if possible, but I don't have the time to do it for now.

Re: [GUI] FileSelect alternative - Customize / Restrict to a specific folder (14.02.2018)

14 Feb 2018, 17:47

Hi DigiDon, thanks for your continued work on this project. Just wanted to alert you to a couple of things.
I'm running Win7-64, AHK_L 1.1.127.07 and have tried it with AHK_H 1.1.127.06, both U64.

1) As downloaded, it won't start. At lines 337 and 435, instead of "SetTimer( "RemoveToolTip", -3000 )", I think it needs to be:

Code: Select all

SetTimer, RemoveToolTip, -3000
Replacing that and running it brings up this GUI, much different than the OP's images:
SelectFiles.GUI.2.14.18.PNG

But upon entering a folder:

Hi burque505,

Thanks for notifying me! ;)

I already implemented it in a project and therefore am making modifications in it directly before trying to put them back on there.

Truth is I was surprized nobody complained of a problem :lol:

I'll take a proper look, will soon update.

Re: [GUI] FileSelect alternative - Customize / Restrict to a specific folder (14.02.2018)

14 Feb 2018, 18:15

I've made some changes and it seems the single line WinWaitClose of the example does not work anymore because the Gui is hidden at first.
So the calling of the function has to be modified.

I'm on the same environement so it works but please confirm ;)
I've updated the OP.

Code: Select all

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
#SingleInstance, Force

;ANY SINGLE FILE ANYWHERE
FSHwnd:=FileSelectSpecific("","","File","Please Choose a file")
WinWait % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
WinWaitClose % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
if !glb_FSReturn
	msgbox No selection
else
	msgbox selection was %glb_FSReturn%
; ONE OR MORE NON-RTF FILES WITHIN C:
FSHwnd:=FileSelectSpecific("","C:","File","Please Choose file(s) in C: (no rtf)","",1,,,"rtf",1)
WinWait % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
WinWaitClose % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
if !glb_FSReturn
	msgbox No selection
else
	msgbox selection was %glb_FSReturn%
return

Hi, I'm still getting exactly the same behavior, except no SetTimer error.
Screenshots still the same as my last post.

Hi burque505,

I'm surprized.

I've tested again from the sample in this very topic and it's working fine.

Are you sure you put first the testing sample and then the function (outside autoexecute) ?
PS: just in case I switched the examples so that you choose a file in C: first.

Please try the complete example:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
#SingleInstance, Force

; ONE OR MORE NON-RTF FILES WITHIN C:
FSHwnd:=FileSelectSpecific("","C:","File","Please Choose file(s) in C: (no rtf)","",1,,,"rtf",1)
WinWait % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
WinWaitClose % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
if !glb_FSReturn
	msgbox No selection
else
	msgbox selection was %glb_FSReturn%
	
;ANY SINGLE FILE ANYWHERE
FSHwnd:=FileSelectSpecific("","","File","Please Choose a file")
WinWait % "ahk_id " FSHwnd
WinWaitClose % "ahk_id " FSHwnd

Re: [GUI] FileSelect alternative - Customize / Restrict to a specific folder (14.02.2018)

Unrelated but I've noticed there is a small bug for the icons of the drives though, I'm working on it.

And even if there shouldn't be an error I'll try to make really sure the VarSetCapacity is fine.

Minor corrections.
15.02.2018 - 15h UTC+1
  • Correction: Icons of drives, directories and files without ext are better dealt with
  • Included the full example to the fuction
  • Moved VarSetCapacity to protect the DllCall better

OK great news ! I suppose it is better to put a full example rather than the function and separate doc.
I guess you ran the function code directly which caused the weird things.

Thanks, I hope it will be helpful indeed.

If you can please test a bit the two functions and tell me if you see flickering on the first one (try to specify sizes if you can).
Tell me if you notice something else.

  • Managed to avoid flickering in the first simplier version: therefore deleted the other version
  • Little better autosizing
