Select File Dialog
How, in HPOO, do I create a pop up dialog box to select a file? Right now the box I'm using requires the user to entire the entire path and file name of the file I want to read.
It is not possible to get the file browser pop-up during flow execution, however if you already know what files/paths are possible for that step it is possible to prompt the user with a selection from the list of files.
The selection prompt can be done by using selection lists or flow variables. Let us know a bit more about your usecase and we will try to help you out further.
I built a general purpose flow that sends a command via ssh to sets of servers, using a file the user selects, each line containing the set name, the server list, and the command to send. Unfortunately I can't predict where they would have put the file.
While testing the flow I was pasting in the full path with the file name.
In this case the only good/simple solution is to prompt for the path to the file.
You could do something more complicated like asking the filesystem to find the file containing the data you need and prompt all found files, however that is more complicated and error prone.
