    when usiing FILENAME in  a res container
    the usage is very limited , in particular for a VP plugin.
    I need to give my plugin a folder address , but this FILENAME gadget is only happy when I click direectly on some existing filename.
    The alternative is to manually either type or copy/paste a folder location into the text feild.
     
    my question is  , is there some flag to force the FILENAME to expect a folder and not a file (like a normal file selector)
    this would maek it much more usefull.
     
    cheers

    Yes.

    Unfortunately this is impossible. It was suggested during development, but never implemented.

    No. You would have to create your own resource data type and a custom GUI for it. (A good exercise, but perhaps not the answer you wanted... :-)
