I would like to use file dialog to get a folder path for saving purposes. I don’t want to use the folder dialog because than I can’t paste a path, and it’s generally less comfortable.
I would like to filter the “files of type” to only folders, not seeing any other types of files.
Adding a picture of the code

You have to implement a FileDialogObserver for that dialog, and return false from the IncludeFile callback:
Code: Select all
void	OpenNotesObserver::IncludeFile (const DG::FileDialogIncludeFileEvent& /*ev*/, bool* enable)
	*enable = false;
