Hi List,
I want my File chooser not to dispose when i choose a directory.I thought that
jImageFileChooser.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY);
will work for me, but it isnt.
heres a part of my code
private String browseImageFile()
{
if(imageFilePath == null)
jImageFileChooser = new JFileChooser();
else
{
jImageFileChooser = new JFileChooser(imageFilePath);
}
jImageFileChooser.setAccessory(new ImagePreview(jImageFileChooser));
jImageFileChooser.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY);
Vector ext = new Vector();
ext.add("gif");
ext.add("jpg");

Filter filter = new Filter(
ext, "Just Images(jpg/gif)");//i m adding a filter to let choose only gif/jpegs
jImageFileChooser.addChoosableFileFilter(filter);
jImageFileChooser.setDialogTitle("Add Image");
jImageFileChooser.setAcceptAllFileFilterUsed(false);
if (jImageFileChooser.showOpenDialog(this) == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION)
{
imageFilePath = new String();
int slashIndx = jImageFileChooser.getSelectedFile().toString().lastIndexOf(FileUtils.getSeperator());
imageFilePath = jImageFileChooser.getSelectedFile().toString().substring(0,slashIndx);
if(!jImageFileChooser.getSelectedFile().isFile())
return null;
else
return (jImageFileChooser.getSelectedFile()).toString();
}
else
return null;

}
At the moment, I m living with the alternative that when a directory is selected the jImageFileChooser.getSelectedFile().isFile() is false(however isDirectory() still doesnot give true!!),
and my function returns null but disposes the FileChooser dailog.
favour me by giving some info as to how get out of this problem
Thanks,
Shelly.
