Problem with Java swing directory chooser

Discussion in 'Programming' started by infyrahul, May 9, 2012.

    I have used swing directory chooser to select input directory for my application to process.
    But if I select a particular directory, for example..
    c:/Desktop/user/documents/myfolder

    filechooser.getcurrentDirectory() returns only "c:/Desktop/user/documents/".
    Why? Can anyone say why this is happening?

    And what code are you using? fileChooser.getSelectedFile() or fileChooser.getCurrentDirectory(); You should use the first option.

    It returns the directory you are inside, not the selected file.
    Remember fileChooser.getSelectedFile() can be a directory as well.
    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/io/File.html#isDirectory() - you should check the resulting file with this function, to determine, whether it is a directory or not.
