Instance Method

fileNamesFromRunningOpenPanel

Returns a selection of files chosen by the user in the Open panel.

Declaration

- (NSArray *)fileNamesFromRunningOpenPanel;

Discussion

Each file in the returned NSArray is a fully qualified path to the file’s location in the file system. This method is called by openDocument:, and it calls runModalOpenPanel:forTypes: after initializing the Open panel (which includes getting the starting directory with currentDirectory). Returns nil if the user cancels the Open panel or makes no selection.
