Description:


like a normal enterBox, but does filename-completion when TAB is pressed.


Warning:


This is too-simple a dialog, and has been obsoleted by a much better Dialog 
with tree-like file selection.
Please use 
    Dialog requestFileName:'...'
or:
    Dialog requestDirectoryName:'...'
instead.

Instance protocol:

accessing
o  directoriesOnly
set to expand names for directories only

** This is an obsolete interface - do not use it (it may vanish in future versions) **

o  directoriesOnly: aBoolean
set/clear for directories only

o  directory: aFilename
set the directory

o  filesOnly
set to expand names for files only

** This is an obsolete interface - do not use it (it may vanish in future versions) **

o  filesOnly: aBoolean
set/clear for files only

initialization
o  createEnterField
redefined, since we need an editfield for filenames here
(if the class has not been compiled in, use a dumb default field)


Examples:


examples (for ST-80 compatibility, please use Dialog messages): simple (most common):
    |someString|

    someString := FilenameEnterBox request:'enter a filename:'.
