dialog_create_filebrowse marked as deprecated?

Is there anything new we can use to create a filebrowser? It still works, but it's strange. Also, it doesn't show some extension if they are not known. Is it an error in implementation (I'm using the code found at "FileBrowse sample : Using native filebrowse and filesave dialog in Cascades").

 

Thanks for help.

Thanks for the quick answer, I missed this one when browsing the doc.

 

Any solution if I don't want to use a standard extension (".lib" for example).

Sorry, but I don't understand what you're asking :smileysad: You want to use your own custom extensions like in deprecated api or I'm wrong ?

Re: dialog_create_filebrowse marked as deprecated?

Actually I never succeded to display document with an unknown extension in the file browser. I would like it to display all lib files (they are kind of sound files) that it find in the document folder.

 

Is there an easy way to do that, or must I create my own browser?

 

Thanks for your help

 

Cheers

Let it go, I found what I was missing to achieve this. And it works well now.

Thanks a lot for the quick answers.

Re: dialog_create_filebrowse marked as deprecated?

There is no special solution, you just have to follow what is written in the sample. I changed a line in the qml file and stupidly copy back the code from the documentation page, so my first changes were removed...

My mistake.

I assume in order to display anything different than music/photo/video/docs we should use FileType::smileysurprised:ther, but I have no idea whether it will look for files in other dirs, example misc

Re: dialog_create_filebrowse marked as deprecated?

the answer is here:

The application invoking the FilePicker can also provide a custom filter and/or the directory that FilePicker will display on open. This will override the filter and folders associated with the file type. The filter is the list of string patterns that supports wildcards. For example, if the filter string is "*.jpg", FilePicker will list files where the file has an extension of ".jpg".
