Ever notice how the File Open dialog in some applications (including the PowerBuilder IDE) show multiple file types in a single line in the drop-down list box? Ever wonder how you could do it from PowerBuilder? Well, if you look at the documenation for the OpenFileName structure that is the argument for the native GetOpenFileName function in the Windows API, you'll notice the following statement about it's lpstrFilter attribute:
"To specify multiple filter patterns for a single display string, use a semicolon to separate the patterns (for example, "*.TXT;*.DOC;*.BAK")."
Well, it's not documented, but that works for the filter argument for the PowerScript GetFileOpenName function as well. Try setting the filter to something like:
"Graphic Files (*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.jpeg),*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.jpeg"
And you'll see that not only does the dialog show that line in the DDLB, but it also shows all the files that match any of those file types.
