FileDialogSelectedItems Object (Office)
A collection of String values that correspond to the paths of the files or folders that a user has selected from a file dialog box displayed through the FileDialog object.
Use the SelectedItems property with the FileDialog object to return a FileDialogSelectedItems collection. The following example displays a File Picker dialog box and displays each selected file in a message box.
Sub Main() 'Declare a variable as a FileDialog object. Dim fd As FileDialog 'Create a FileDialog object as a File Picker dialog box. Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker) 'Declare a variable to contain the path 'of each selected item. Even though the path is aString, 'the variable must be a Variant because For Each...Next 'routines only work with Variants and Objects. Dim vrtSelectedItem As Variant 'Use a With...End With block to reference the FileDialog object. With fd 'Allow the selection of multiple file. .AllowMultiSelect = True 'Use the Show method to display the File Picker dialog box and return the user's action. 'The user pressed the button. If .Show = -1 Then 'Step through each string in the FileDialogSelectedItems collection For Each vrtSelectedItem In .SelectedItems 'vrtSelectedItem is aString that contains the path of each selected item. 'You can use any file I/O functions that you want to work with this path. 'This example displays the path in a message box. MsgBox "Selected item's path: " & vrtSelectedItem Next vrtSelectedItem 'The user pressed Cancel. Else End If End With 'Set the object variable to Nothing. Set fd = Nothing End Sub
