Workaround for GetFolderItem

I’m using xojo 2019r3.2 and we’ve run into a problem on the Mac where retrieving a saved path using folderitem.absolutepath are being retrieved incorrectly when using GetFolderItem and indicating it was saved as an absolute path. This happens when the path is not on the current volume.

Does anyone have a workaround for this?

Try to save the path using folderitem.NativePath.

That’s a great idea, but this is a legacy app in the hands of thousands of users. We have lines of code using absolute path all over the place.

Is there a way to get the absolute path and convert it to a native path, then save it?

Correct FolderItem from saved AbsolutePath:
dim f as FolderItem = NewFolderItemFromAbsolutePathMBS(“saved AbsolutePath”)
