    Hi

    I tried to use the relativ path to my formativ application in the Stringlist.LoadFromFile() function, but it didn’t work. When I declare the full path it works.

    i.e.
    The application file *.vbf is located in C:App
    In the same folder is also a textfile, which I’d like to load.

    I use myStrList.Loadfromfile(“C:AppmyFile.txt”). This works, but when I use use myStrList.Loadfromfile(“myFile.txt”) it doesn’t work. How can I solve this problem? Is it possible to get the path of the currently running applet? So it would be possible to use this path.

    Thanks.

    regards

    I found out how I can realise that. The following code returns the path of the currently running applet:

    appletPath = Utilities.CurrentAppletName
    appletName = Utilities.CurrentAppletShortName & “.vbf”
    appletPath = left(appletPath, InstrRev(appletPath, appletName, -1, 1) – 1)
