    Hi guys. Simple question. I have this line:
    self.file = self.AddCustomGui(1000, c4d.CUSTOMGUI_FILENAME, "", c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_SCALEFIT, 0, 0)

    Any chance I can restrict selection only to directories or folders? I don't want users to select files, but rather directory, where those files are.

    Thank you.

    I have not used that custom gui yet, but there is with the flag FILESELECT_DIRECTORY, which does bring up the os folder selection dialog. So you could 
    build that what you want out of a button and another gadget to display the path(s).

    Hi Tomas,

    CUSTOMGUI_FILENAME has the option FILENAME_DIRECTORY that can be set to display it in directory chooser mode. The options or settings container is passed to AddCustomGui() as last parameter.

    Yannick, any chance you can elaborate on that? I am not py4D guru, so don't really understand what you mean:) Any chance you can give an example on how to do that? Thank you:)

    Hi Tomas,

    Here's some code that can be put in the CreateLayout() method override:

    settings = c4d.BaseContainer()
    settings.SetBool(c4d.FILENAME_DIRECTORY, True)
    self.customGui = self.AddCustomGui(1001, c4d.CUSTOMGUI_FILENAME, "", c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT|c4d.BFV_CENTER, 0, 0, settings)

    If FILENAME_DIRECTORY is set, CUSTOMGUI_FILENAME button opens the directory chooser dialog instead of the file select.

    Thanks Yannick, that did the trick.
    Appreciate your help.
