Tizen Native API  5.0
File Selector Entry

This is an entry made to be filled with or display a file system path string. Besides the entry itself, the widget has a file selector button on its side, which will raise an internal file selector widget, when clicked, for path selection aided by file system navigation.

This file selector may appear in an Elementary window or in an inner window. When a file is chosen from it, the (inner) window is closed and the selected file's path string is exposed both as a smart event and as the new text on the entry.

This widget inherits from the Layout one, so that all the functions acting on it also work for file selector entry objects (since 1.8).

This widget encapsulates operations on its internal file selector on its own API. There is less control over its file selector than that one would have instantiating one directly.

Smart callbacks one can register to:

  • "changed" - The text within the entry was changed
  • "activated" - The entry has had editing finished and changes are to be "committed"
  • "press" - The entry has been clicked
  • "longpressed" - The entry has been clicked (and held) for a couple seconds
  • "clicked" - The entry has been clicked
  • "clicked,double" - The entry has been double clicked
  • "focused" - The entry has received focus (since 1.8)
  • "unfocused" - The entry has lost focus (since 1.8)
  • "selection,paste" - A paste action has occurred on the entry
  • "selection,copy" - A copy action has occurred on the entry
  • "selection,cut" - A cut action has occurred on the entry
  • "unpressed" - The file selector entry's button was released after being pressed.
  • "file,chosen" - The user has selected a path via the file selector entry's internal file selector, whose string pointer comes as the event_info data (a stringshared string)
  • "language,changed" - the program's language changed

  • "default" - A label of the fileselector_button
