buddyAPI has a function that returns the path to the application associated with any filetype (windows or mac).
baFindApp( ".ext" )
Where ".ext" is the file extension you are looking for. I use it to set a global variable:
set assoctatedApp = baFindApp( ".ext" )
That way you can refer back to it later in other parts of your application, eg:
if assoctatedApp = "" then
do some lingo
do some other lingo
(it returns "" if there is no associated app)
Or you can use it to do a certain thing if it is associated with a particular app, or something else if associated with another... you get the idea :)
I think you want to know the meaning of the .dxr/dcr files
1. .dir are Adobe/Macromedia Director files
2. .dxr are protected Directorfiles that can be called bya Director-
movie or a Director projector. Protected means that this are not
3. .dcr are .dirs converted to shockwave format for use in html- applications.
Thank you so much.
