Open sas program dialog in a Custom Task

I need to use the "Open a program" dialog Enterprise Guide in a custom task. Could you explain to me how?

Re: Open sas program dialog in a Custom Task

please elaborate what you are trying to achieve.

Eguide is an Analytics tool. Perhaps your goal is resulting in using an other tool /approach

Re: Open sas program dialog in a Custom Task

There isn't a Custom Tasks API to show the file selector dialog.  You can show the data set selector with Consumer.ShowInputDataSelector, but that's good for data sets only.

For local Windows files, you can simply use the FileDialog class from the .NET Framework.  But for remote files -- those located on the remote SAS session, it's much trickier.  If you can provide a bit more information about what you're trying to do, I'll see if I can suggest a solution.

Hello Chris

That's what I thought. I looked everywhere and found nothing

In fact, I've developed a file selector for the SAS server side. I used it to refer files to transfer between the server and the user workstation. I'll reuse it


Thank you anyway

Victor,

Sounds like a good plan.  Let me know if you run into any more questions along the way...
