OpenFileDialog opens at the same place no matter the left, top values.

Code copied from Documentation, except the left and top values that are text fields.
Is there a way to control where the dialog will open?.

Var dlg As OpenFileDialog
Var f As FolderItem
dlg = New OpenFileDialog
dlg.ActionButtonCaption = "Action Button"
dlg.CancelButtonCaption = "Cancel Button"
dlg.SuggestedFileName = "Suggested Filename"
dlg.Title = "Title bar text"
dlg.PromptText = "Prompt Text"

// dlg.Left = 50
// dlg.Top = 50

// these values do nothing
dlg.Left = TextFieldLeft.Text.ToInteger
dlg.Top = TextFieldTop.Text.ToInteger

f = dlg.ShowModal

Tested additional environments and it did not work in these:

  • DesktopAPI project as provided in Big Sur
  • DesktopAPI project as provided in Windows 11
  • API 1.0 project on Big Sur with hard-coded top/left

Things did work in these scenarios:
- API 1.0 on Windows 11 with hard-coded top/left
- API 2.0 on Windows 11 with hard-coded top/left

Update: The success reports were incorrect.

I don’t believe that Apple lets you decide any more.

If it’s not supported in either Mac or Windows anymore (what about Linux?), then these properties should probably be deprecated in Xojo :man_shrugging:
