Hey Everyone today I was making a program to transfer pictures off my grampas camera to a set directory, within the file it asks for a destination to save the file and you have to enter the destination. A bit complicated for my grampa so I was wondering if theres a way you can open a browsing window (like when you save or open a file) and take the destiation selected on it and set it to a variable?

OR Any other suggestions to make this a bit easier so he dosen't have to go searching for the destination directory.


Thanks

P.S. Check out "Batch Icons???" Fourm.

Great!!!

But one quick question can you put in 2 locations you want it to show for example My Computer and the Desktop?


Thanks

I'll try to explain it a better sorry for the confusion. When I went to the site you posted I got the code for the vbscript it works great I just need to know one thing. One of the two code shows how to make it with My Computer as the start directory in the code. And the other one shows how to put a file location as the start directory but can I put two start directorys?

I think I understand what you are talking about but it is not possible to specify two starting paths for the BrowseForFolder object.

However you could cheat a little bit. Create some temp folder. Inside that temp folder create two symbolic links or shortcuts to the folders that you want the user to select. Use that temp folder as your path in the Vbscript.

You would need to use sysinternals Junction to create the hard links for the directories.
