A couple of weeks ago in a Discovering Visual DataFlex training one of the trainees stumbled over a problem caused by the Current Directory. In this blog I tell you more about the problem and what the Current Directory has to do with it.
In the case that let me make this blog a dbBitmap control was used to display an image. A dbBitmap control is a database aware control so the name of the image file is stored in a column of a row in a table. Pictures can be in a folder
This week two developers asked me about a folderbrowser/selector. Over the years several solutions have been created (fully) using the Windows API. But as far as I know they all do not have the ability to set the focus on a certain folder shown in the tree. And that is what the developers wanted to have. I said it is "simple" to make a folder selector yourself. This blog tells you how you can create one yourself using Visual DataFlex code and a bit Windows API code.
