remembering the work directory
Posted on 2001-06-08
I coded an application which contains a dialogue which prompts the user for a filename where the new input will be stored. My problem is that my program by default always suggests the same specific directory where the files will be stored. This can be very annoying for the user, if he wants to choose another directory for his personal files. He always has to jump from the default directory to his desired directory. And if the user saves 10 files during one session, he always has to browse through many folders....
Well, you will agree with me that this situation is not very user friendly.
Can you please tell me an elegant way how I can remember the preferred directory during one session?
