FeatureRequest: getfile.gadget

Post by OldFart »

Hi,

Would it be possible to incorparate this feature for the getfile.gadget?

When de following tags have been set (or default) to:

Code: Select all

GETFILE_DoSaveMode, FALSE,
GETFILE_DoMultiSelect, FALSE,
GETFILE_DrawersOnly, TRUE,
[/b]
to have the files in a drawer listed anyway?
I suggest this tag:
"GETFILE_ShowFiles", defaulting to FALSE.
The files listed should be unselectable as per "GETFILE_DrawersOnly, TRUE,", but listed anyway for informational purposes. This could provide a positive effect on the general user experience when trying to find the proper drawer, especially those new to the platform.

The tag GETFILE_RejectIcons, may be in effect as well, as per current implementation.

Would this be feasible?
