Is there Code to display explorer in Details View? | 2006-03-30 14:38:50
I need a getfile() function that will display the files in the DETAIL View sorted by the newest files first.

Anyone know how to do this before I attempt it?
A.M. | 2006-03-30 16:10:51
Sounds like a threat :) Try this for a starter:

oShell = CREATEOBJECT("Shell.Application")
oFolder = oShell.NameSpace("c:\Program Files")
oVerbs = oFolder.Self.Verbs
oVerb = oVerbs.Item(0) && open

You are the man.... Great job works perfectly.

But how does it work?
Don Higgins | 2006-03-30 17:43:58
Only one item. I need to be able to choose a file like GetFile() allows me to. Is that possible with this?
A.M. | 2006-03-30 19:49:55
Ok, let's move on :) try this

oShell = CREATEOBJECT("Shell.Application")
oFolder = oShell.NameSpace("c:\Program Files")
oItems = oFolder.Items
FOR EACH oItem IN oItems
    WITH oItem
        ? .Name, ", last modified on", .ModifyDate

Thank you for your help. Should I be placing the file information into a table and put it in a grid so I can choose which one I want?

The code you gave me lists the files but does not allow me to choose one.

There are some limits of course.

Check functions and related examples in this reference: GetOpenFileName, GetFileNameFromBrowse, SHFileOperation. They may give you some ideas.

Thanks again for steering me in the right direction.
