How do I select multiple files from ProjectWise?

I am trying to get a list of files to process on from the user but I have not been able to figure out how to do this.  I can get one file fine via the mdlDialog_fileOpen inside the stdmdlbltin.dll, but as far as I can tell, there is no way to allow the user to select multiple files.

What I'm looking for is the dialog you get when you try to attach a reference to a file.  It has a single "tab" at the top that says Select.  Inside there, you can select multiple documents by hitting control or shift.  Or alternatively, hitting the Add button, which adds to the bottom panel.

I've tried using the mdlFileList_Edit, but that appears to allow me to open a folder, which is not what I'm looking for.

My backup plan is to use the batch processor, but I'd prefer not to do that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • the Download link to get the mvba is broken on your site

    I haven't had time to rewrite the VBA for CONNECT.  Download the V8 version and modify it.

    I searched through the folder that contained the stdmdlbltin.dll and mdlbltin.dll is not there

    Read the responses to your questions.  Both  and I have informed you about stdmdlbltin.lib and mdlbltin.lib.  The library (*.lib) files are delivered with the MicroStation SDK for the use of native code (C++) developers.  They are of no use with any other language.

    I can see stdmdlbltin.dll in the CONNECT ..\MicroStation folder.  I mistakenly changed the DLL name in the function declarations, which I've corrected.

    I was looking through the SDK information to see if there was a way to create the dll from the lib but haven't seen anything

    When Bentley Systems build MicroStation, the DLLs in the ..\MicroStation folder are created from those *.lib files.
