Language-bug in dir-selection-dialog-box?

Dear LabVIEW-ers,

I have a problem with a german LabVIEW installation on an english NT4. Why
do I have language-mixed button-captions (german/english), when I invoke the
dir-selection-dialog-box? Is this a LabView-bug?

I'm using English LabVIEW in Spanish WinNT, and the only caption not translated to the OS language is SelectCurDir. button. Is this what you are talking about? If so, i suppose this happens due to the inexistence of Select current directory button in Windows, but not sure.
Hope this helps

Your described problem matches exact with my problem 😞
A solution is a DLL-invoke with the "SHBrowseForFolder"-API function.
Thanks.

Can you explain that more deeply? I'd like to know more...

Hi Gorka,

create your own DLL and invoke:


....
BROWSEINFO bi;
....
ITEMIDLIST* pidl = SHBrowseForFolder( &bi );
....
SHGetPathFromIDList( pidl, selectedPathName);
....
return selectedPathName;


For more information look at this

I hope it helps.
