I’m not sure where to stick suggestions like this, so if this is the wrong place, please disabuse me.
The FileChooserDialogBox header has a nice snippet of sample code to illustrate how to create a FileChooserDialog box:
WildcardFileFilter wildcardFilter ("*.foo", "Foo files"); FileBrowserComponent browser (FileBrowserComponent::loadFileMode, File::nonexistent, &wildcardFilter, 0); FileChooserDialogBox dialogBox ("Open some kind of file", "Please choose some kind of file that you want to open...", browser, getLookAndFeel().alertWindowBackground);
This little example just needs to be updated a bit:
1)WildCardFileFilter now takes three parameters, not two
2)FileBrowserComponent no longer has a “loadFileMode”, it’s been replaced with open, canSelectFiles, etc.
3)FileChooserDialogBox now takes 5 parameters, not 4
4)LookAndFeel no longer has an alertWindowBackground() method. I’m really not sure what the replacement is. I used Colours::grey, but perhaps there’s a better, more platform correct choice.
Other than that, the snippet was quite helpful!
