File Open Dialog

Look in

Lists the available folders and files. To see how the current folder fits in the hierarchy on your computer, click the down arrow. To see what's inside a folder, click it.

File and Folder List

This list displays all the files and folders located in the folder specified by the Look in field that match the search specifications of the File name field and/or the Files of type field. You may select any file in this list and press Ok to open the file. You may also double-click on any file in this list to open the file.

File name

This box allows you to type a full path to a file, a relative path to a file, a path to another folder to browse, a file name to open, or a partial filename with wildcards (* and ?) to search for. Depending on what you choose to do, the Look in field and the File and Folder List will update to reflect the change. If you type an exact match to a particular file, then that file will be opened.

Files of type

Select the types of files you want to open from the drop-down list. The File and Folder List will update to show only the types of files specified by the Files of type field. Dependency Walker provides three options for this list:

Handled File Extensions

Selecting this type will show all files that contain a file extension that you have told Dependency Walker to handle. To configure what extensions are handled, see the Handled File Extensions Command. You can load a file with any extension, but this setting only displays the ones that are handled.

Dependency Walker Image (DWI)

Selecting this type will show all files with the DWI extension. DWI files are image files that contain a complete snapshot of a previous Module Session. By loading a DWI file, you can view the complete results of a previous Module Session without actually being on the system that generated the results.

All Files (*.*)

Selecting this option will simply display all files for the current folder. This can be useful in finding a file that you have not told dependency walker to handle.
