FileListBrowse

DESCRIPTION

This module displays in a scrolling list widget a list of file names that match a given pattern. It behaves very much like a file browser widget, but can be constrained to show only a certain set of files and generally does not allow the user to walk around a directory tree. This module is useful for wiring into a map or particularly an application that has a number of input file possibilities that all match a particular pattern. Then, the Filename output parameter of this module can be wired to the file name input of a reader module elsewhere in the map.

The FileListBrowse module's scrolling list widget is fixed in the "Browse Select" mode, so exactly one item may be selected at a time. Use one of the related FileList modules if a different selection mode is required.
