I am trying to write a popup that will display a box to select a text file to play from my text directory in mirc, then play the file i select in the channel. I've tried searching for how to write this, but the suggestions other have given did seem to work.

I tried it 3 different way from 3 different suggestions on websites...none of them played my file. Here are the three different popup lines I've tried:

PlayTXT:/play $$file="Choose a Txt" text\*.txt

Text:/play # $dir="select a txt file" $mircdir $+ *.txt 1000

Commands:/play -c # $dir="select a txt file" $mircdir $+ *.txt 1000

Could someone please show me how to create a popup that will open my C:\program files\mirc\text directory, let me select one of the text files there, and then play it in the channel with a 1 second delay?

Thank you!!

Sparta, well.....now I have:

Text:/play # $sdir=(c:\program files\mirc\text) $+ *.txt 1000

And I'm feeling more confused that I was before. All this seems to do is let me select a directory...but I can't get to the files in the directory.

What have I done wrong?

#sdir? that brings up the directory selection dialog, not the file selection...

locutus - i tried out the code you wrote, and while I can now select a file, when I click "grab it" it won't play. Is there an option in mirc that i might have forgotten to check that is keeping me from playing the text file?

I get this message when I try to play them:

* /play: unable to open 'C:\Program'

*sigh* I tried the code you gave me pheonix, and I am still getting the same message as when I tried playing with locutus' code:

* /play: unable to open 'C:\Program'

If it helps any, the exact location of my text fils for mirc is:
C:\Program Files\mIRC\text

I don't understand why these won't play. Is there maybe an option for being able to play files that I have forgotten to select?
