How to list the subfolders of a folder


    Oct 23 2011 | 8:27 am
    Hi,
    Is it possible to list the subfolders of a folder in Max or javascript for Max? I know about the [folder] object but I can't see how it can be used to list the subfolders of a folder (no appropriate 'types' message). I'm working with Max 5 on OS X SL.
    Cheers,
    Aengus.

      Oops. Sorry- it's right there in the js docs:
      inlets = 1;
      outlets =1;
      function listfolder(x)
      {
      f = new Folder(x);
      while(!f.end)
      {
      post(f.filename);
      if (f.filetype == "fold")
      {
      outlet(0,f.filename);
      }
      f.next();
      }
      }
      Cheers,
      Aengus.
