[section]The ImageSelectWindow




[point]WindowType (IconMenu)

[point]Remove (IconBut)

Delete the ".Bpib" help file in the current directory. A new ".Bpib" is only created once the directory is read again.

In parts of the Blender interface where pictures can be loaded, you generally have the option of using a FileSelect window or the ImageSelect window. For the most part, the functionality is the same. The ImageSelect window reads the directory and examines each file to see if it is a recognisable image. After the entire directory is scanned, the images are loaded and displayed as a thumbnail and saved in the ".Bpib" file. If a ".Bpib" file already exists, it is first read in and compared to the contents of the directory.


[point]P (But)

Displays the parent directory. Also with: PKEY.

[point]DirName: (TextBut)

This button displays the current directory.

[point]Preset Directories (MenuBut)

The file $HOME/.Bfs contains a number of pre-sets that are shown in this menu. While a file is being read or written, the directory involved is temporarily added to the menu.

[point]FileName: (TextBut)

The file name can be entered here.


[point]Status Icons.

The different phases of ImageSelect: - Was a ".Bpib" file found? - Was the directory scanned completely? - Have all the pictures been read in?
