Q&A > GUI Programming > How do I make Open and Save As file dialogs? (Win32) contributed by mdillon

In the ActivePerl FAQ: Is there a way to do GUI programming with ActivePerl?

It refers to Win32::GUI, which seems to be the module's author's page; it also has a lot of useful info about other Win32 modules, as well as links to precompiled versions for the compiler impaired.

Below is some (untested) code based on a message from the Win32::GUI mailing list:

use Cwd; # returns selected file name; undef if Cancel sub file_open_dialog { my $file_spec = "*.bmp\0" . " " x 256; # init a C-friendly buffer my $dir = cwd; GUI::GetOpenFileName( -title => 'Load/Save File', -owner => $Win, -directory => $dir, -file => $file_spec, ) }
