MaxSystem.openDialog for folders


    Mar 21 2011 | 7:18 pm
    This doesn't seem to be in the archives. To my surprise.
    Is it possible to get MaxSystem.openDialog to allow the user to navigate to a *folder* rather than a file.
    Maybe like System.setProperty("apple.awt.fileDialogForDirectories", "true") from java.awt, but I do not want to use awt or swing.

      Ditto for MaxSystem.saveAsDialog.
      Sorry for the bump-style post, but this is also an issue.
      Would I be better off with the SysFile API in C? It's occurring to me that this particular mxj could be done almost as easily with the C API.

      I would bump this too :). The Dialogs are awesome, would love to have control over them as described, maybe even populate a new extension list.
