GetFileNameFromBrowse is nothing more than a simplified wrapper around the GetOpenFile-Name function.

Declare Function GetFileNameFromBrowse Lib "shell32" Alias "#63" (ByVal hwndOwner As Long, ByVal lpstrFile As String, ByVal nMaxFile As Long, ByVal lpstrInitialDir As String, ByVal lpstrDefExt As String, ByVal lpstrFilter As String, ByVal lpstrTitle As String) As Long

Operating Systems Supported


Parameter Information
- hwndOwner
identifies the window that owns the dialog box.

- lpstrFile
points to a buffer that contains a filename used to initialize the edit control. When the function returns, this buffer contains the full path of the selected file.

- nMaxFile
specifies the size, in characters, of the buffer pointed to by lpstrFile.

- lpstrInitialDir
points to a string that specifies the initial file directory. If lpstrFile contains an initial filename, the lpstrInitialDir is ignored and the path from the filename is used instead.

- lpstrDefExt
points to a buffer that contains the default extension.

- lpstrFilter points to a buffer containing pairs of null-terminated filter strings.

- lpstrTitle
points to a string to be placed in the title bar of the dialog box.
