Description

The Path Browser is a pre-configured template that contains several objects (image, text, dropview, switch) and can be used on macro pages to open folders and select objects, such as sample files, for example. In addition to the common properties like size, position etc., it provides a number of special properties which allow you to configure the control template. If the control needs to be adapted graphically, this can be done inside the template by changing the individual components. The control also accepts the drop of folders or files directly from sources like the Explorer or Finder. When clicking the open icon, a file dialog opens that lets you choose the file or folder. Clicking OK will set this path.
