Hi folks: I need a SaveFileDialog without Confirm when selecting a pre-existing file. Does anyone know how to do this with Xojo?
Reason: this app is almost always overwriting pre-existing files, and continually clicking on the Confirm dialog box becomes annoying for the end-users, and, of course, they quickly stop checking the file name for correctness. The Confirm box becomes the proverbial cry of “Wolf !”.
Annoyingly, the Windows ‘default’ savefile dialog has a property that determines whether you are prompted or not.
The Xojo savedialog does not expose that property
Nor does the MBS equivalent
In days gone by I could invoke a save dialog from the commoncontrols OCX
But MS don’t ship that with Windows 10 onwards, I gather. (could be wrong…?)
I had hopes of trying it with an OLEContainer
Selected Microsoft Common Controls in the IDE,
added this code to a button
But I get a nil object error that I dont know how to fix.
I’m afraid this is not correct: Monkeybread Xojo plugin - WinFileDialogMBS properties
Thats great. A different class/plugin to the one I found when searching on the monkeybread site, but welcome!
Thank you, Arnaud. Exactly what I need. MBS is the answer. Now everyone is happy
