No, I'm still using this ugly and clumsy widget... I don't think there's an easily available better option.
As far as creating a new subdirectory, the chooseDirectory returns a path, you create the directory. Parts of my code look something like this:
my $folder; # in real code this is triggered by a button press $folder = $mw->chooseDirectory( -initialdir => '~', -title => 'Choo +se a folder',); # triggered after user made its folder choice # almost certainly won't work if user enters a multi-level folder stru +cture if (!-d "$folder") { print "\nCreating $folder"; mkdir "$folder" or abort("Can't create folder $folder: $! at line +" . __LINE__); # abort sub is my own code, use die if needed }
