I was exploring the code below to add file browse option, which I got from a solution here in this forum.
procedure( fileBrowser() let( ( field browseBtn ) field = hiCreateStringField( ?name 'filename) browseBtn = hiCreateFormButton( ?name 'browseBtn ?buttonText "Browse..." ?callback "ddsFileBrowseCB( hiGetCurrentForm() 'filename \"\" 'directory )" ) hiCreateAppForm( ?name 'CCSfileBrowserForm ?formTitle "Example Form" ?callback "" ?fields list(field browseBtn) ) hiDisplayForm(CCSfileBrowserForm) ))
procedure( fileBrowser() let( ( field browseBtn ) field = hiCreateStringField( ?name 'filename) browseBtn = hiCreateFormButton( ?name 'browseBtn ?buttonText "Browse..." ?callback "ddsFileBrowseCB( hiGetCurrentForm() 'filename \"\" 'directory )" )
hiCreateAppForm( ?name 'CCSfileBrowserForm ?formTitle "Example Form" ?callback "" ?fields list(field browseBtn) ) hiDisplayForm(CCSfileBrowserForm) ))
As per the documentation, the specific function has this option:
s_mode : The selection mode specified as a symbol with the following choices: 'anyFile: selection is any file, whether it exists or not 'existingFile: selection is a single file (default) 'directory: selection must be a directory where both files and directories are displayed 'directoryOnly: selection must be a directory where only directories are displayed 'existingFiles: selection consists of zero or more existing files
But, none of these options are working for me. Irrespective of the option, the file browse window shows all the files and folders. Is there anything wrong with my approach? Is there anything wrong with the filer I'm using which is simply blank?
I'm using icfb 5.1.0.
Found that this issue is due to the tool version difference.
LeJonT As per the documentation, the specific function has this option:s_mode : The selection mode specified as a symbol with the following choices: 'anyFile: selection is any file, whether it exists or not 'existingFile: selection is a single file (default) 'directory: selection must be a directory where both files and directories are displayed 'directoryOnly: selection must be a directory where only directories are displayed 'existingFiles: selection consists of zero or more existing files
In the tool version 5.1, only the 'anyFile and 'existsingFile options are available. Rest of them are available from 6.1 version onwards.
Hi LeoUnfortunately the problem does indeed exists on IC5141. I tested "directoryOnly" option in IC614-504 and it worked fine.Best regardsQuek
In reply to LeJonT:
I think you have resolved your problem, can you tell me where to find the function "ddsFileBrowserCB()", thanks
In reply to imagesensor123:
Again, the function name is ddsFileBrowseCB() (no "r" after Browse). I think that this function was introduced in the USR4 release of IC5141, so if you cannot see it, you must be using an older release than this. I recommend upgrading your installation since USR4 is very old indeed. If you cannot do this, you will probably have to write the file browser in SKILL. There may be pre-existing examples of this.
In reply to skillUser:
thanks, but i don't know how to check our cadence release verison, i just know that we are using ic5141, and i can't find ddsFileBrowseCB() in finder, but when i typed ddsFileBrowseCB() in CIW, it prompt that two arguments is required, so i think my cadence can recognize this function, unfortunatly, i search this function through all the documents, but i didn't find it. so if you have some example or document about this function ,can you share it with me!
Lawrence already referenced a solution with an example in your other post

I want to registe an online support account, but why it always turns up the window " the server is unavaible, try later", can you give me a link to registe online support?
In reply to zfengINL:
You should just go to http://support.cadence.com and then in the "New User" section hit the "Register Now" button. I tried that, and it got onto the next page - not sure if that's the site you used, and if so, at which point it failed? If you can elaborate that, I can get somebody to check it out.
