Directory for Linked File or Directory List Box Not Updated
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 4.0, 4.0a
The directory text item that displays the directory name for a linked File or Directory list box does not update when the dialog box is created in the Dialog Editor.
Below is a dialog box table created in the Dialog Editor with a Linked File or Directory list box:
A1:Item B1:X C1:Y D1:Width E1:Height F1:Text G1:Init/Res A2: B2: C2: D2:348 E2:124 F2: G2: A3:6 B3:10 C3:6 D3:160 E3: F3: G3: A4:18 B4:10 C4:26 D4:160 E4:84 F4: G4: A5:19 B5:178 C5:26 D5:160 E5:84 F5: G5: A6: 20 B6:178 C6:9 D6:160 E6:12 F6:Text G6: A7:1 B7:46 C7:118 D7:88 E7: F7:OK G7: A8:2 B8:215 C8:116 D8:88 E8: F8: Cancel G8:
When you use this combination of items (shown in the Item column) only the name of the current directory is displayed, and it does not update when a new directory is selected.
To work around this problem, change the item number in cell A6 from 20 to 5.
