CONTENTS

 use Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ChooseFile ( destroy_with_parent => TRUE,
                                     modal => TRUE );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple file chooser api that wraps Gtk2::FileChooser objectively. The objective is a simple ways to prompt a user to open or save a file.

OPTIONS

All public methods (and the entire class) support the following options:
<B>titleB> => STRING The text string to use as the title of the dialog window. Defaults to either Open or Save based on the action context.
<B>pathB> => STRING The path to a file or directory to initialize the dialog with. Defaults to the current working directory.
<B>parent_windowB> => Gtk2::Window Reference to the main application window.
<B>destroy_with_parentB> => BOOL When the <B>parent_windowB> is destroyed, what do we do? Defaults to FALSE.
<B>modalB> => BOOL Does this dialog make the <B>parent_windowB> freeze while the dialog exists. Defaults to FALSE.
<B>must_existB> => BOOL The end-user must supply a path to an existing file or directory. Should the end-user provide a non-existant path, the dialog will be respawned until an existing file is chosen. Defaults to FALSE.

PUBLIC METHODS

OBJECT = <B>newB> ( OPTIONS | PATH ) Create a Gtk2::FileChooserDialog with the options given and show it to the end-user. Once the user has selected a file return only the path to the file and clean up. In the special case of being passed only one argument, all options are set to defaults and the one argument is used as the <B>pathB> argument.
RESPONSE = <B>ask_to_openB> ( OPTIONS | PATH ) Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ChooseFile, with some specific defaults, and return the user’s response. In the event of being given only one argument, it will be used as the <B>pathB> option.
RESPONSE = <B>ask_to_saveB> ( OPTIONS | PATH ) Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ChooseFile, with some specific defaults, and return the user’s response. In the event of being given only one argument, it will be used as the <B>pathB> option.
