Hi,

I am trying to use client_get_file_name to display the select file dialog box. My problem is that I can get the dialog box to open but it does not default to the folder that I specify in the client_get_file_name parameter (r_system_data.import_dir points to c:\reports).
v_filename := client_get_file_name(r_system_data.import_dir, null,
 'CSV Files (*.csv)|*.csv|',
 'Select a file to import travel details from');

The strange thing is when I use JInitiator 1.3.1.22 the diolog box defaults to the c:\reports folder but when I use J2SE JRE 1.5.0_21-b01 it defaults to c:\temp (which is where 'My Documents' points to, may be just a coincidence)

I am running Windows XP SP3 with IE8

Hope someone can help me or point me in the wright direction.

Many thanks

Neil

Dear,

try the following code:

Declare
	v_file varchar2(500);
Begin
	v_file := CLIENT_GET_FILE_NAME (directory_name => 'C:\Forms\Reports',
	                               file_name       => NULL,
	                               file_filter     => NULL,
	                               message         => 'Open a file',
	                               dialog_type     => OPEN_FILE);
	                               
End;

Hi Tamzidul

many thanks for your suggestion. I gave it a try but the result was the same. I will continue to work at it and if I have any success I will post the result.

Many thanks

Dear,

Please make sure your WEBUTIL configuration is correct or not.
Because the following code is ok.

Declare
	v_file varchar2(500);
Begin
	v_file := CLIENT_GET_FILE_NAME (directory_name => 'C:\Forms\Reports',
	                               file_name       => NULL,
	                               file_filter     => NULL,
	                               message         => 'Open a file',
	                               dialog_type     => OPEN_FILE);
	                               
End;

Is this your first form? Can you get the 'test' form working?

Hi David,

I have created a few forms some with WebUtil functionality and some without. I have had the 'test' form working. When I use JInitiator the dialog box opens at the intended folder(c:\reports) but when I use JRE 1.3, 1.4 or 1.5 it opens at 'My Documents' folder.

Many thanks

Neil
