FolderBrowserModernDialog Control

Post by timstspry11 »

Hello, I have a fairly simple form project that loads 2 combo boxes and has the FolderBrowserModernDialog control which I use for browsing to a particular directory. This is all working well, my question is the dialog box has 2 buttons - select and cancel. If the cancel button is clicked, the script resumes execution after the code where the FolderBrowserModernDialog box is displayed. This is not the behavior that I want.

How do I hook up the cancel button so that clicking the cancel button does not result in continuing through the script, but closes the FolderBrowserModernDialog box and returns control to the script logic just prior to displaying the dialog box?

Thanks in advance!


I am running the 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise. The build of PowerShell Studio 2015 that I am using is 4.2.94

You can check what result the FolderBrowser returned:
PowerShell Code
Double-click the code block to select all.
	if (($folderbrowsermoderndialog1.ShowDialog()) -eq 'OK')
		#process the file
		#else the user pressed cancel

FYI, here is a related article on closing the form:
