I am trying to select a file by using
open_dialog() instead of defining the path of the file. However, after the prompt window is opened and I navigate to the file, I cannot really select it and the prompt window is not closed. Any further issues I need to do on the below MWE code?
#file = "C:/Users/.../My_file.txt";
file = open_dialog("My first file dialog")
filehandle = open("$file");
Netlist_lines = readlines(filehandle);
It works well with Julia 1.7 Win10, Gtk v1.1.9: once a file is selected in the dialog window and the
Open button hit, the window closes.
not an issue but
open("$file") does the same as
I see. thank you very much.
I am using VS code with julia v1.4.2 at win 11, and after I select the file and hit the
open button, nothing is done.
any recommendation to solve it?
No idea if this is a new Win11 feature or something else.
You could try using one the alternative methods presented in this thread.
Yes, I would recommend using the NatifeFileDialog.jl package if all you need is a file dialog.
@stevengj Thank you. I have tried
NativeFileDialog and it works in my case.
I have further issue that if I need to add a basic directory to the
pick_file() such as I want the prompt window to open at first at this directory ““C:/Users/…”. Do you know what should I do?
I used the below, but it gave me an error”
ERROR: LoadError: MethodError: no method matching pick_file(::String; path="C:/Users/", filterlist="txt;net")
path isn’t a keyword argument, so you don’t give it a name when calling the function. Try
@stevengj I used
and it gave me the below error

Looks like an error coming from the underlying C library nativefiledialog … maybe it doesn’t like how you are specifying the path? e.g. try
