Howto Use TOpenDialog

Simple and short guideline:

  1. Place a TOpenDialog widget topendialog.png on your form (anyplace, since it will be not visible).
  2. In your code write something similar to:
  filename: string;
if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  filename := OpenDialog1.Filename;

The Execute method displays the file open dialog. It returns true when user has selected a file, false when user has aborted.

The Filename property returns the full filename including drive and path.

Note: This control only collects the filename. It does not actually open the file. Your code must do that.
