recursive filepath?

January 31, 2010 | 7:24 pm

I’m building a standalone, in which I’d like to be able to dynamically add a path to Max’s search path, but also to make that path recursive, to allow Max to search subfolders of the path. I know that in the File Preferences window, there’s a checkbox to allow entered paths to also have their subfolders searched, but I see no way using the filepath object to do so programmatically. Is there a way?

Thanks,
Dan
