I tried to use the FileChooseer class to get a list of filenames and the directory containing the files in order to forward both to a service, which should process the files. What the method startChooser returns is a list of files, including their content, but I cannot find a way to get the directory. Did I overlook something, or is there a lack of functionality?

Hi Reinhold

Scout uses a regular INPUT element for its file-choosers in the UI. When you upload a file to the browser and then query the INPUT element to show the name of the uploaded file, it will only return the file-name, not the whole path. I guess this is because of security concerns. Since browsers don't provide this information, you cannot access it in Scout either.

Anyway: when you have a Scout Classic application, the UI server normally couldn't access the filesystem of a remote client anyway, even if you had the whole path.
