i have a script that loads a texture into a material channel.
i can get texture to load if the texture is in the same folder as project with filename as eg.. "texture.jpg".
but if i try to load it from a different folder eg... "c:\Folder\subfolder exture.jpg"
it loads the path as "c:Foldersubfoldertexture.jpg"
does anyone know how to get the brackets to stay in the path?

i dont know if this will make people understand more but i said the wrong name.
its meant to be "back slash" \ (not bracket)

i got it working.
i had to add double back slash
eg... change c:\folder\image.jpg to c:\\folder\\image.jpg
(just incase someone has same problem)

It is generally better to use AddLast(folder or file name) to construct the path instead of writing it directly. This also makes sure it is plattform independently generated I´d say.

that wont work?
because im using it to load a texture to a material (same material all the time)then apply it to an object.
wouldnt "AddLast(folder or file name)" just use the last path a browsed to.
which i dont wont because i could change the path, which would make the code not work anymore

What I mean is something like this:
Filename fn = "C:";
You shouldn´t explicitly define the path as you did. It doesn´t matter how you use it, I am talking about the compatibility of the path construction if you know what I mean.
