Displays a dialog box with which a user can specify the path to a new or existing file or directory.
Text to display on the OK or Current Directory button in the file dialog box.
If button label is longer than the width of the button, the file dialog box does not display the entire label. The button is typically about 11 characters wide.
Default: Empty string
Custom message that appears as the title of the file dialog box.
Default: Save As
Path of the directory whose contents are initially displayed in the file dialog box.
If start path is valid, but does not refer to an existing directory, this node strips names from the end of the path until the path is a valid directory path or an empty path. If start path is invalid, the last directory viewed in a file dialog box initially appears in the dialog box.
Default: No value — Displays the last directory viewed in a file dialog box
Name you want to appear as the initial file or directory name in the dialog box.
Default: Empty string
Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Default: No error
A string containing special characters that this node uses to restrict the files displayed. pattern does not restrict the directories displayed.
The pattern matching used by this node is similar to the matching used in matching wildcards in Windows filenames.
|?||Matches any single character.|
|*||Matches any sequence of zero or more characters.|
|;||Separates patterns, allowing you to specify multiple allowable patterns. Do not insert whitespace following this character because this node interprets whitespace literally.|
|All other characters, including white space||Matches the exact character.|
Text to display in the file dialog box next to the custom pattern. If you do not wire a string to pattern, this node ignores this input.
Default: Custom Pattern
Absolute path to the file or directory selected using the file dialog box. If the user cancels the dialog box, this output returns <Not A Path>.
Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
