Make an Up (Parent Directory) Button

  • # June 7, 2013 at 11:33 am

    I made a “Display Styled Directory Contents”

    and I need to make a parent directory button so that techs can maneuver around the folders. any ideas?

    I think you need to explain a little more what you mean.

    Do mean design a button or how to achieve the functionality?

    if you look at the link above you can see what I did. Since i have it set to not show hidden files the “parent directory” doesn’t show up. I need them to be able to click a button and go up a level in the directories. does that make sense?

    That sounds like functionality to me.

    Assuming each directory listing has an index that’s configured in that way, couldn’t you just link with ‘../’ ?

    Or am I oversimplifying this ?
