default location for opendialog?


    May 08 2006 | 11:47 am
    Hello,
    I'd like to launch some opendialog objects with a default location, to avoid to navigate among different directories as I know the exact path to search in. With 'path' -> [thispatcher] I easily get the parent directory of subdirectories I'm interested in (like "Audio", "Colors","Presets" or "Scores"). But I don't know how to use these paths with the opendialog objects I use. Do someone know?
    Thanks, kb

      hi,
      I don't think opendialog allows a specific path as input - at least if it's the case, I missed the info in the doc. But if you know the path you want to search in, you can cook something with ubumenu and/ or dropfile. There's an exemple in the help patch of ubumenu ('prefix' message). Then you could easily have a bpatcher to paste in every of your patches. Would this do the job ?
      hth,

      Hi,
      I succesfully tried your tip! I now use 'path' -> [thispatcher] -> [sprintf "%sMyFolder"] -> [prepend prefix] - > [ubumenu]...
      Thank you! Karim
