NAME

       FileBrowser - browse and/or select file names

SYNOPSIS

       #include <InterViews/filebrowser.h>

DESCRIPTION

       FileBrowser  is  a  StringBrowser  that  displays  file names. In addition to the standard
       StringBrowser constructor parameters, the FileBrowser constructor takes a  directory  name
       as  an  argument.   The  FileBrowser scans the corresponding directory, appending the file
       names to its list of strings.  FileBrowser lets the user  choose  a  file  name,  and  the
       application queries the FileBrowser for the chosen file.

PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       FileBrowser(ButtonState*,  const  char*  dir,  int  rows, int cols, boolean uniqueSel, int
       highlight, const char* done)
       FileBrowser(const char* name, ButtonState*, const char*, int,  int,  boolean,  int,  const
       char*)
              Create   a  new  FileBrowser  object.   The  ButtonState,  rows,  cols,  uniqueSel,
              highlight, done, and name parameters have  semantics  identical  to  those  of  the
              corresponding  StringBrowser parameters.  The dir parameter specifies the directory
              to search for file names.  Internally, FileBrowser prepends dir  to  relative  path
              specifications in operations that require them, thus avoiding a chdir(2).

       boolean IsADirectory(const char*)
              Return whether or not the given relative path corresponds to a valid directory.

       boolean SetDirectory(const char* newdir)
              Change  the  search  directory  to  newdir  if  that  directory is accessible.  The
              function returns true if successful.

       const char* GetDirectory()
              Return the name of the search directory.

       const char* ValidDirectories(const char* path)
              Given a path string, return the largest substring (starting from the  beginning  of
              path)  that  represents a valid path.  The substring is returned in a static buffer
              and should be copied before use.

       const char* Normalize(const char* path)
              Return a normalized version of path with all spurious  slashes,  dots,  and  tildes
              interpreted.   The  normalized  path  is  returned in a static buffer and should be
              copied before use.

       const char* Path(int i)
              Return the ith string as it appears in the FileBrowser.  This function prepends the
              search  directory  to  the  string,  normalizes  the concatenation, and returns the
              result.

       void RereadDirectory()
              Rescan the current directory without updating the FileBrowser's appearance.

       virtual void Update()
              Rescan the current directory and update the FileBrowser's appearance to reflect any
              changes in the set of files it should display.

       void SetTextFilter(const char*)
       void SetDirectoryTextFilter(const char*)
       void SetModeFilter(int)
       void SetDirectoryModeFilter(int)
              By  default,  FileBrowser  displays  all  the files and directories it finds in the
              search directory.  These functions provide  some  control  over  the  entries  that
              FileBrowser   displays.    SetTextFilter   specifies   a  regular  expression  (see
              Regexp(3I)) to match against file names.  SetDirectoryTextFilter serves  a  similar
              role  for  directory  names.   SetModeFilter and SetDirectoryModeFilter specify the
              mode (see chmod(1)) that displayed files and directories should have.   Only  files
              and  directories that match both the regular expression and the mode will appear in
              the FileBrowser.  Passing nil for the regular expression or 0 for the mode restores
              the default behavior.

PROTECTED OPERATIONS

       void UpdateStrings()
              Explicitly update the FileBrowser's appearance to reflect any changes in the set of
              files it should display without rescanning the directory.

       virtual boolean Acceptable(const char*)
              Return whether the given file name is an acceptable name.  By default,  files  that
              conform  to the text or mode filter specifications are acceptable.  Only acceptable
              files will be displayed by UpdateStrings.
