Class IFSFileSystemView

  • java.lang.Object
    • javax.swing.filechooser.FileSystemView
      • com.ibm.as400.vaccess.IFSFileSystemView

  • Deprecated. 
    Use com.ibm.as400.access.IFSSystemView instead.

    public class IFSFileSystemView
    extends javax.swing.filechooser.FileSystemView
    Provides a gateway to the IBM i integrated file system, for use when constructing javax.swing.JFileChooser objects.

    JFileChooser is a standard Java way to build dialogs for navigating and choosing files, and is the recommended replacement for IFSFileDialog.

    The following example demonstrates the use of IFSFileSystemView.

     
     import com.ibm.as400.access.AS400;
     import com.ibm.as400.access.IFSJavaFile;
     import com.ibm.as400.vaccess.IFSFileSystemView;
     import javax.swing.JFileChooser;
     import java.awt.Frame;
     
     // Work with directory /Dir on the system myAS400.
     AS400 system = new AS400("myAS400");
     IFSJavaFile dir = new IFSJavaFile(system, "/Dir");
     JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser(dir, new IFSFileSystemView(system));
     Frame parent = new Frame();
     int returnVal = chooser.showOpenDialog(parent);
     if (returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
        IFSJavaFile chosenFile = (IFSJavaFile)(chooser.getSelectedFile());
        System.out.println("You selected the file named " +
                            chosenFile.getName());
     }
