get filename from buffer read dialog?

April 17, 2006 | 5:56 pm

here is one for you:

how can i get the filename of the file read
when i use the "read" command to fill my [buffer~]?

it seems impossible from the bufer object but
of course it is also impossible to implemetn a
ssecond task parallel to sending "read" …

ok i guess [opendialog filetype]-[110.droptobuffer]
does what i need … but if you have an idea how
to gt it directly from the buffer object let me know.

Use the open object instead for the dialog, prepend read/replace to the
buffer~, or use info~, but this doesn’t give you the path in case you
need it.
