In Game Maker you can use get_open_filename to browse for files, but there is no way to browse for folders. This extension allows you to open a folder browser dialog.
There are 2 functions that comes with the extension:
* zdir_get_directory(path, description) This function opens a folder browser dialog and returns the selected directory. The first argument, "path", specifies the root folder for the dialog. The second argument, "description", specifies the description of the dialog. * zdir_show_new_folder_button(show) This function specifies if you want to show the "Make New Folder" button in the dialog. The argument, "show", can either be true or false.
Note: There are a few things you need to keep in mind when using this extension:
You cannot open the folder browser dialog in the first frame of the game. If you open the folder browser dialog with a key-press or a mouse-press, make sure to use keyboard_clear/mouse_clear afterwards as Game Maker doesn't clear the key-state automatically for some reason.
