Display the standard Windows Browse For Folders dialog to select a folder.


First available in version 3.0 build 2039.

Input Parameters:

title - [Optional] - String to be displayed as the title of the folder browser window.

path - [Optional] - Path to the folder where the browse operation will start. If not specified, the browse operation will start at the Windows default folder. This parameter supports monikers.

Output Parameters:

result - The path to the selected folder or an empty string if no folder was selected.

Asynchronous Mode:

When this method is called asynchronously, a return object containing the output parameters is passed to the specified callback function.

ssCore.App.showFolderBrowser( paramsObject [, callbackParamsObject] [, errorParamsObject] );

Synchronous Mode:

When this method is called synchronously, a return object containing the output parameters is returned to the caller immediately.

var returnObject = ssCore.App.showFolderBrowser( paramsObject );


You can't select folders with the standard Windows "File Open" or "File Save" dialogs so this command displays the standard "Browse For Folder" dialog which allows you to select a folder.


// Make sure the window is visible.;

var return_obj = ssCore.App.showFolderBrowser({title:"Select a folder", path:"startdir://"});
