GetFolderDialog() is an alternative to GetFolder() and is based on WinAPI IFileOpenDialog. Would be nice if PowerBuilder could provide something like this as a standard PowerScript function. Visual Studio 2017 getfolderdialog.dll sources (GetFolderDialog and GetFolderDialog_test solution) attached. See '.\GetFolderDialog\pb' for PB 12.5 example app. See doc dirs for VS project configuration and compilation instructions.

Thank you so much, Bas!!!

It works fine and looks much better than before using PB GetFolder()!

I added an alias at the end of the external Funktion Declaration and now i can use 32 or 64 call, depending of the environment.

Greetings and have a nice weekend

Hi Stephan,

Attached the 64-bit getfolderdialog_x64.dll with PB test app. The test app was coded in PB2017. The .dll should:
* run/debug in a PB2022 IDE if you set option Platform in menubar to 'x64' (it does not run/debug in the IDE of lower PB versions)
* work correctly in application executables built for platform 64-bit in PB2017 or higher.

Tested in PB2017 (executable only), PB2019 (executable only) and PB2022 (executable and IDE).

Greetings, Bas.

Hi Bas,
thank you for this code. Is there also an additional .dll for 64 bit? I didn't find anything on the web or visual studio.

Best regards from Germany
Stephan
