File browser user interface

May 30 2008 | 4:04 pm


I would like to know if there is a Max object that displays the content of a computer folder as a list of file names, sizes and dates, with the possibility to select one or several files (that are highlighted in this case) with the mouse or with messages.

Thanks a lot,

No! I’ve tried to find that "object" or other similar ways to do it, but there are nothing like Windows or OSX file browser on Max. It is a shame!

There is Topher Lafata’s mxj filebrowse, but I’m afraid you don’t have
size/date infos, nor the possibility to select multiple files.
It’s a cool one though…

Yes, this mxj filebrowse program is great but it can’t be used for selecting several files at the same time …

The size / date infos are not really important. Conversely, the possibility to select several files is a priority …
