      You can call getfolder with something like that:
      char path[MAX_PATH_CHARS];
      short result, vol;
      
      result = getfolder(&vol);
      if (!result) {
      	path_topathname(vol, NULL, path);
      	post("%s", path);
      }

      Hi Emmanuel,
      thank you. The next problem is that the folder dialog needs a sort of "promptset". Something like folder_promptset("Please select the xyfolder");
      open_promptset doesn't change the dialog, i tried.
