File Dialog

It is quite simple to bring a file dialog to pickup a file outside Max:

filename = getOpenFileName
 if filename != undefined then
 print filename


filename = getSaveFileName

essentially does the same thing but confirm button label is “Save” rather than “Open”.

The file dialog can have more options like:

filename = getSaveFileName \
caption:"Title of the Dialog Window" \
 types:"Data(*.txt)|*.txt|All|*.*|" \
 filename:(sysinfo.currentdir + @"\untitled.m")
