AutoHotkey: List files through a GUI

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2020-09-17
Hello experts,
I am trying to set up a file listing through an AutoHotkey GUI.
Here are the requirements:
Through a GUI report folder path in which will be generated the file.
List files in a new file and open it.
The final need is to add the following new features:
-File name and file full path differentiation
-Immediate and recurse differentiation
I am quite sure that the best approach for this is radio. However prior to propose something I would like to know:-
-If code structure is ok or should I review it.
-What is the best option to create the 2*2 differentiation.
Functions with switch case?
The differentiation is based on the:
Loop, Files, %FolderPath%\*.*, FD, R ; for recurse, blank for immediate
FileList = %FileList%% A_LoopFileName %`n; for file name
FileList = %FileList%% A_LoopFileFullPath %`n; for file full path

I am aware that I need to do some file tuning and add the controls. However I will do it following your recommendations.

I attached my initial version.

Thank you for your help.
