How to get FileName path from dialogBox?
I want one dialog box with two question.
First question is: which file do you want work with? and open button
Second question: enter page range AND here some INPUT FIELD
So I want get string with file path and string with range
No i just want have full path to file
You can use the app.browseForDoc() method to prompt the user to select a file. It then returns that file's path, inside of an object.
I have error
NotAllowedError: Security settings prevent access to this property or method.
Yeah, you can only use this method from a trusted function, ie a script that's installed on the user's local machine, or a certified document.
So it doesn't help me
The only other way I can think of is with a text field that's set for file selection, but I'm not sure that will work from a dialog...
I did it in two steps
// dialogBox just for information
cMsg: "select a file",
//open a window for select a file
// we'll never look at it so size is unimportant
var tmpDoc = app.newDoc(0,0);
// Create the Text Field
var fld = tmpDoc.addField("tmpTxt","text",0,[0,0,0,0]);
// Set up the Text field so the file dialog can be called
fld.fileSelect = true;
// Display File Open Dialog
// save the selected file path to a local variable
// so it can be used later
var path_second_file = fld.value;
// Close Document without saving
