Selecting OS X Apps
Date: 29.05.02 17:02 (Wed, 29 May 2002 18:02:18 +0200)
From: Aram Kudurshian
Hello,

I've been trying to create an open dialog that allows me to select Mac OS X
applications such as Internet Explorer and OmniWeb but have been having some
trouble. It seems that even using special/any as a filter type won't allow
me to select these applications. I've added a .app to the types dialog and
it still doesn't work.

Can anyone help me out?

Aram

That functionality is not supported in any version of REALbasic.
Unfortunate in my opinion, if RB wants to be a real player in OSX.
You can purchase an expensive plugin to get that functionality, but I
think it should be built into RB. If you agree, I hope you will
REALbug this request as I recently did, so that it can hopefully make
its way into RB 4.5, which seems to be adding a lot of good OS X
features.

You have got to be joking! I just paid for an upgrade to RB 4 to get OS X
features and now a mission critical feature I need is missing. Could you
please tell me what plugin allows this function as I unfortunately will
probably need to purchase this. I'll be using REALbugs a bit later on today
I guess...

I guess there are no workarounds, right?

There is one free plugin that is available for download.

http://homepage.mac.com/funkaster/realbasic.html

Check out the getExtendedOpenFolderitem plugin. Last time I checked it
was a little buggy, but see if it suits your needs.

The one that costs money is at:
http://homepage.mac.com/vanhoek/
called NavFolderItem or something like that.

Good luck,

Adam

Hi Aram,
You can use Alfred Van Hoek's great (and free) NavFolderItem plugin to get
access to Application packages under OS X. You can download it here:

http://homepage.mac.com/vanhoek/

And yes, I think it's a joke that this isn't supported in RB yet.

Cheers,
Will

Just a little plug:

NavFolderItem comes in a free and shareware version. The shareware version
is much more up-to -ate and has a lot of new and very powerful features.

For instance, custom control support, class-based and event-based dialog
reply management (callback system like Navigation Services work), extensive
support for Navigation Services dialog flags and types, etc.

Plus, when you buy it, you get the rest of his plugins, which are all
high-quality stuff.
