New Folder Dialog

Sometimes you have to create new folder in a path.
Its easy with if you use a dialog.

(look for the example to create a new file too)

Save the DlgNewFolder.js in the Droidscriptfolder where you need the file.
You can call the dialog after you load the Script into your app at the OnStart() Event.

function NewFolderDialog(savepath)
{
  var self = this;
  this.Fdlg = app.CreateDialog("Create a new Folder:");
  this.Flay = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "FillXY" );
  this.Ftxtpath = app.CreateText(savepath,0.9,0.02,"Left,Autoscale");
  this.Ftxtpath.SetMargins(0,0.01,0,0);
  this.Ftxtpath.parent = self;
  this.Flay.AddChild(this.Ftxtpath);
  this.Fedt = app.CreateTextEdit("",0.9,0.05,"Left");
  this.Fedt.SetTextSize(18);
  this.Fedt.SetHint("Foldername");
  this.Fedt.parent = self;
  this.Flay.AddChild(this.Fedt);
  this.Fbtnlay = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "Horizontal,FillXY" );
  this.Fdlgbtn = app.CreateButton("OK", 0.45);
  this.Fdlgbtn.parent = self;
  this.Fdlgbtn.SetOnTouch(Fdlgbtn_OnTouch);
  this.Fbtnlay.AddChild(this.Fdlgbtn);
  this.FdlgbtnCancel = app.CreateButton("Chancel",0.45);
  this.FdlgbtnCancel.parent = self;
  this.FdlgbtnCancel.SetOnTouch(Fdlgbtn_OnTouch);
  this.Fbtnlay.AddChild(this.FdlgbtnCancel);

  this.Fdlg.AddLayout(this.Flay);

  this.Hide = function(){self.Fdlg.Hide();}
}//function NewFolderDialog()
 
 
// Called if a button is touched
function Fdlgbtn_OnTouch()
{
    var par = this.parent;
    folder = par.Fedt.GetText();
    path = par.Ftxtpath.GetText();
    if(this.GetText()  == "OK") CreateFolder(folder, path);
    par.Hide();
}//function Fdlgbtn_OnTouch
 
 
// Called if Button Ok is touched
function CreateFolder(foldername, path)
{
    if (foldername != "")
    {
    //Replace illegal letters
    foldername = foldername.replace(/(=|\\|\/|\*|:|,|;|\+|<|>|\"|\[|\]|\?|\|)/g,"");  
 
    //Replace double Whitespaces   
    foldername = foldername.replace(/(\s+)/g," "); 
 
    //Replace Whitespaces at the start and at the end            
    foldername = foldername.trim();
 
        //Check if Folder exists. If yes, show a message
        if (app.FolderExists(path + foldername))
        {
        app.Alert("Please select another Foldername!", 
                  "Error - Folder already exists!");
        }
        else
        {
        //Create the folder
        app.MakeFolder(path + foldername);
        //show a message if creation was ok
        if (app.FolderExists(path + foldername))
            app.ShowPopup("Folder Created!");
        }
    }
}//function CreateFolder

In your app you have to do just three things,

1. Load the Script with

  app.LoadScript("DlgNewFolder.js") 

2. Create a Button to call the Dialog and add it to the layout

  btn = app.CreateButton( "Create a new Folder", 0.3, 0.1, "Alum" );
  btn.SetOnTouch(CreateNewFolder);
  lay.AddChild( btn );

3. Write a function to call the Dialog

  //Create a new Dialog 
  function CreateNewFolder()
  {
      // Change the path if you need
      DlgNewFolder = new NewFolderDialog("/mnt/sdcard/");
      DlgNewFolder.Show();    
  }

Or you can use this Example.

exampleapp.js
//Called when application is started.
function OnStart()
{
    app.LoadScript("DlgNewFolder.js")      
    lay = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "VCenter,FillXY" );    
    btn = app.CreateButton( "Create a new Folder", 0.3, 0.1, "Alum" );
    btn.SetOnTouch(CreateNewFolder);
    lay.AddChild( btn );
    app.AddLayout( lay );    
} 
 
 
//Create a new Dialog 
function CreateNewFolder()
{
    // Change the path if you need
    DlgNewFolder = new NewFolderDialog("/mnt/sdcard/");
    DlgNewFolder.Show();    
}
