  • OpenFileDialog and double click

    If I double-click on a file in OpenFileDialog called as below, it appears to select the file OK and dismiss the open dialog, both good, but also my app picks up the mouse click (or clicks? haven't worked out which), which is not so good.

    Has anyone else noticed this, and/or can suggest a remedy?

    Code:
    '---------------------------------------------------------------------
    FUNCTION getpic (hD AS LONG) AS STRING
        LOCAL buf, spath, sfile AS STRING
        LOCAL dwstyle AS DWORD
        LOCAL hFile AS LONG
    
        '------------------------ get picture file
        dwStyle = %OFN_EXPLORER OR %OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST OR %OFN_HIDEREADONLY
        Buf   = "Picture files (*.JPG)|*.JPG|"
        'IF gddlpath <> "" THEN spath = gddlpath
        IF OpenFileDialog (hD, "Locate JPG file ", sfile, spath, buf, "JPG", dwstyle) = 0 THEN
           EXIT FUNCTION
        END IF
        FUNCTION = sfile
    END FUNCTION

    Shouldn't, unless you are double clicking the OK/Open/Save Button like another recent thread talks about (Or Triple Clicking the file...). Double clicking the file or single clicking the file and single clicking OK/Open/Save should work fine without anything going to your app.

      ...
      Just a random thought:
      Is your app using DDT? If so, you might be getting multiple windoze messages depending on what & how the app deals with the return string.
