Selecting or creating a resource (synchronous code) Hide the details

<Result> = URISelect([<MIME types> [, <Mode> [, <Document name>]]])

<WLanguage procedure>: Procedure name
Name of the WLanguage procedure ("callback") called for the selected file. This procedure is called when the user closes the URI selection window. For more details on this procedure, see Parameters of the procedure used by URISelect.
<MIME types>: Optional character string or constant

    Remark: It is possible to concatenate constants by separating them with TAB.
If a specified MIME type is not known by the system, it will be ignored.
If this parameter is not specified, all files will be selectable.
AndroidAndroid Widget On Android, files that do not match the specified MIME types will still be visible but the user will not be able to select them.
<Mode>: Optional Integer constant
WINDEVAndroidAndroid Widget Selection mode:

Remarks

Miscellaneous

  • To manage the URI returned by URISelect, use the URIxxx functions.
  • To retrieve additional information (name, size, MIME type) on the selected resource, use URIGetInfo.
  • AndroidAndroid Widget URISelect is only available on devices running Android 4.4 or later (API level 19).
    A fatal error occurs if the function is used with an earlier system version.
    To determine the version of Android the application is running on, use SysAndroidVersion.
  • WINDEV This function is mainly used to write multi-platform code.

Application in the background: Specific case from Android 10

From Android 10, it is no longer possible to open a window when the application is in the background.
URISelect can open a window. If this function is used while the application is in the background, a fatal error will occur.
Tips:
  • It is possible to determine if the application is in the background using InBackgroundMode.
  • If an application needs to interact with the user while it is in the background, the solution is to display a notification (via the Notification type). The application will be brought back to the foreground when the notification is clicked, if the ActivateApplication property is set to True. You can also open a window from the procedure passed to the ActionClick property.
