While request-file uses the native file selector (at least on Windows that is), this doesn't let you select a directory. Anyone written a simple request-dir function yet?

Reply to self, The following code (on windows) seems to do the trick: <code> request-dir: function [path] [where lst] [ view center-face layout [ where: info 300 form path lst: text-list 300x200 data insert remove-each file read path [not dir? path/:file] %../ [ either path <> %/ [ path: dirize clean-path join path lst/picked/1 ][ either not none? attempt [open dirize lst/picked/1] [ path: dirize lst/picked/1 ][ alert "Device not ready." ] ] lst/lines: remove-each file read path [not dir? path/:file] if path <> %/ [insert lst/lines %../] ; Refresh list clear lst/picked lst/sld/data: 0 lst/sn: 0 lst/sld/redrag lst/lc / max 1 length? head lst/lines show lst ; Refresh text where/text: path show where ] btn "Select" [unview] ] path ] new-dir: request-dir %/c/rebol/ </code> Note the use of "port" to determine whether removable media (typically %/a/ on windows) is actually present. Is this a good technique? (I don't know whether using port without a matching close is *a bad thing* or not). Regards, Ashley

Er, yes. Native too so I can't paste the source. ;) Regards, Ashley

Hi Ashley, I get the following error with the function... ** Script Error: remove-each has no value ** Where: do-facets ** Near: insert remove-each file read path I'm guessing remove-each is a function from the beta REBOLs? Carl. On 03-Sep-02, [atruter--hih--com--au] wrote:

You mean: attempt [open ...] ? Well, it seems fine to me. If open fails then it hasn't opened a port, so you don't need to close one. If open fails it should know how to clean up after itself internally. Anton.
