SYNOPSIS



    use Curses::UI;
    my $cui = new Curses::UI;
    my $win = $cui->add(window_id, Window);

    # The hard way.
    # -------------
    my $dialog = $win->add(
        mydialog, Dialog::Dirbrowser
    );
    $dialog->focus;
    my $file = $dialog->get();
    $win->delete(mydialog);

    # The easy way (see Curses::UI documentation).

    $file = $cui->loadfilebrowser();
    $file = $cui->savefilebrowser();



DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Dialog::Dirbrowser is a dirbrowser dialog. This type of dialog can be used to select a directory, anywhere on the filesystem.

See exampes/demo-Curses::UI::Dialog::Dirbrowser in the distribution for a short demo.

OPTIONS

o <B>-titleB> < TEXT >

Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.

o <B>-pathB> < PATH >

Set the path to start with to PATH. If this path does not exist, the filebrowser will start in the rootdirectory.

o <B>-show_hiddenB> < BOOLEAN >

If BOOLEAN has a true value, hidden files (the filename starts with a dot) will also be shown. By default this option is set to false.

METHODS

o <B>newB> ( OPTIONS )
o <B>layoutB> ( )
o <B>drawB> ( BOOLEAN )
o <B>focusB> ( )

These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Container for an explanation of these.

o <B>getB> ( )

This method will return the complete path to the file that was selected using the filebrowser. If no file was selected, this method will return an undefined value.

SPECIAL BINDINGS

o <B>escapeB>

This will invoke the cancel button, so the filebrowser widget returns without selecting any file.

o <B>~B>

If the directory- or filelistbox of the dialog window has the focus and the tilde (~) button is pressed, the filebrowser will chdir to the homedirectory of the current user.
