Hi Simon,

set the itemDel to slash
put item 1 to -2 of the effective filename of this stack into myPath
set the defaultFolder to myPath
put the files into fld "File List"

You could add icons by preceding the file name with a special  
character and setting the imageSource of char 1 of each line to an  
image id.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
