sys$(6) and fileselector
« on: January 10, 2010, 01:10:17 PM »
1) In version 19.1 sys$(6) is not working as it did previously.

It previously returned the path of the last file DC loaded, regardless of whether the file was saved.

Now it seems to always return the default file path.

2) The reason I need it currently is that DC has no fileselector for loading text files from a macro, and I am crudely hacking a file selector out of the open{} function, using sys(6) for part of the data.

BasicCad sorely needs full access to open and saveas file selector dialogs ( and their data structures ).

Looks like it worked that way until 19.0
