NAME

       Prima::FileDialog - File system related widgets and dialogs.

SYNOPSIS

       # open a file      use Prima qw(Application);      use Prima::StdDlg;

               my $open = Prima::OpenDialog-> new(
                       filter => [
                               ['Perl modules' => '*.pm'],
                               ['All' => '*']
                       ]
               );
               print $open-> fileName, " is to be opened\n" if $open-> execute;

               # save a file
               my $save = Prima::SaveDialog-> new(
                       fileName => $open-> fileName,
               );
               print $save-> fileName, " is to be saved\n" if $save-> execute;

               # open several files
               $open-> multiSelect(1);
               print $open-> fileName, " are to be opened\n" if $open-> execute;

DESCRIPTION

       The module contains widgets for file and drive selection, and also standard open file,
       save file, and change directory dialogs.

Prima::DirectoryListBox

       A directory listing list box. Shows the list of subdirectories and upper directories,
       hierarchy-mapped, with the folder images and outlines.

   Properties
       closedGlyphs INTEGER
           Number of horizontal equal-width images, contained in closedIcon property.

           Default value: 1

       closedIcon ICON
           Provides an icon representation for the directories, contained in the current
           directory.

       indent INTEGER
           A positive integer number of pixels, used for offset of the hierarchy outline.

           Default value: 12

       openedGlyphs INTEGER
           Number of horizontal equal-width images, contained in openedIcon property.

           Default value: 1

       openedIcon OBJECT
           Provides an icon representation for the directories, contained in the directories
           above the current directory.

       path STRING
           Runtime-only property. Selects a file system path.

       showDotDirs BOOLEAN
           Selects if the directories with the first dot character are shown the view. The
           treatment of the dot-prefixed names as hidden is traditional to unix, and is of
           doubtful use under win32 and os2.

           Default value: 1

   Methods
       files [ FILE_TYPE ]
           If FILE_TYPE value is not specified, the list of all files in the current directory is
           returned. If FILE_TYPE is given, only the files of the types are returned. The
           FILE_TYPE is a string, one of those returned by "Prima::Utils::getdir" ( see "getdir"
           in Prima::Utils.

Prima::DriveComboBox

       Provides drive selection combo-box for non-unix systems.

   Properties
       firstDrive DRIVE_LETTER
           Create-only property.

           Default value: 'A:'

           DRIVE_LETTER can be set to other value to start the drive enumeration from.  Some OSes
           can probe eventual diskette drives inside the drive enumeration routines, so it might
           be reasonable to set DRIVE_LETTER to "C:" string for responsiveness increase.

       drive DRIVE_LETTER
           Selects the drive letter.

           Default value: 'C:'

Prima::FileDialog

       Provides a standard file dialog, allowing to navigate by the file system and select one or
       many files. The class can operate in two modes - 'open' and 'save'; these modes are set by
       Prima::OpenDialog and Prima::SaveDialog.  Some properties behave differently depending on
       the mode, which is stored in openMode property.

   Properties
       createPrompt BOOLEAN
           If 1, and a file selected is nonexistent, asks the user if the file is to be created.

           Only actual when openMode is 1.

           Default value: 0

       defaultExt STRING
           Selects the file extension, appended to the file name typed by the user, if the
           extension is not given.

           Default value: ''

       directory STRING
           Selects the currently selected directory.

       fileMustExist BOOLEAN
           If 1, ensures that the file typed by the user exists before closing the dialog.

           Default value: 1

       fileName STRING, ...
           For single-file selection, assigns the selected file name, For multiple-file
           selection, on get-call returns list of the selected files; on set-call, accepts a
           single string, where the file names are separated by the space character. The eventual
           space characters must be quoted.

       filter ARRAY
           Contains array of arrays of string pairs, where each pair describes a file type. The
           first scalar in the pair is the description of the type; the second is a file mask.

           Default value: [[ 'All files' => '*']]

       filterIndex INTEGER
           Selects the index in filter array of the currently selected file type.

       multiSelect BOOLEAN
           Selects whether the user can select several ( 1 ) or one ( 0 ) file.

           See also: fileName.

       noReadOnly BOOLEAN
           If 1, fails to open a file when it is read-only.

           Default value: 0

           Only actual when openMode is 0.

       noTestFileCreate BOOLEAN
           If 0, tests if a file selected can be created.

           Default value: 0

           Only actual when openMode is 0.

       overwritePrompt BOOLEAN
           If 1, asks the user if the file selected is to be overwrittten.

           Default value: 1

           Only actual when openMode is 0.

       openMode BOOLEAN
           Create-only property.

           Selects whether the dialog operates in 'open' ( 1 ) mode or 'save' ( 0 ) mode.

       pathMustExist BOOLEAN
           If 1, ensures that the path, types by the user, exists before closing the dialog.

           Default value: 1

       showDotFiles BOOLEAN
           Selects if the directories with the first dot character are shown the files view.

           Default value: 0

       showHelp BOOLEAN
           Create-only property. If 1, 'Help' button is inserted in the dialog.

           Create-only property. If set to 1, "Prima::FileDialog" returns instance of
           "Prima::sys::XXX::FileDialog" system-specific file dialog, if available for the XXX
           platform.

           "system" knows only how to map "FileDialog", "OpenDialog", and "SaveDialog" classes
           onto the system-specific file dialog classes; the inherited classes are not affected.

   Methods
       reread
           Re-reads the currently selected directory.
