How to create custom file dialog [message #467317] Sat, 28 January 2006 22:17 Go to next message

Hi,
I need to create custom file open dialog with preview of graphics files.
I created a composite for viewing images, but how can I add it to the
file open dialog? Or how can I build my own file open dialog with the
composites of the original one plus my composite?
Thanx.
Murad

And yes, there is an option to view thumbnails of images, but it does
not work for me. I create a preview of custome file formats.

I'm curious. What is the option to view thumbnails? I can't seem to
figure out how to do it in SWT. (code snippet?)

thanks,

The existing SWT file dialog cannot be embedded as a composite. This is because the file dialog itself is entirely native on all platforms. Not all platforms support embedding of the file dialog within another shell and even if they did, it's doubtful that SWT would. The best solution (if you really need it) is to start from scratch and write your own file dialog. Hint: use Program for the file icons. I suggest you also cleanly encapsulate the specific look of the dialog from the dialog itself considering how widely the file dialogs on various platforms differ from one-another.
