$sdir Identifier - mIRC
< mirc‎ | identifiers

$sdir displays the select folder dialog and returns the selected folder


$sdir(dir, title, button)

$sdir="title" <dir>
;This is the old format still supported by mIRC
;The quotes are optional if title doesn't contain spaces


  • dir - The directory you want to open
  • title - The optional title
  • button - The optional text of the 'open' button on the dialog

Note: Prior version of mirc (before 7.x'ish) were using a different dialog selection which was allowing the usage of a wildcard to fill in the 'folder' field in the dialog, but mIRC is not longer using that dialog, and therefore it's now no longer possible to pass a wildcard as the 'dir' parameter here.




//echo -a $sdir($mircdir,"choose a folder!,Ok!)
