FileDialog and setFilterPath - bug or feature? [message #639556] Tue, 16 November 2010 21:36 Go to next message

Hi All,

I posted this bug...

but since I'm new to eclipse, and SWT, I wonder if I'm just making a dumb mistake.

I have a FileDialog, which is set to open in the same path every time by using setFilterPath().

But once the dialog is open, i navigate to a different path, and select a file there, then click "Open".
Now the future behaviour changes. Next time, the FileDialog opens up in the location of the last file selected, ignoring the path given by setFilterPath() which is called every time after creating the dialog but before I open the dialog.

I can see why this functionality would be useful *if* setFilterPath was not called, but when it is, it seems wrong to ignore it?

Does anyone know if that's a bug or a "feature"? Thanks in advance...

This looks like a bug to me. setFilterPath() should set the initial directory path in the FileDialog. I don't have Windows7, but setFilterPath() works fine for me on Win XP (here is the snippet I tried Snippet72)
