Re: Fileselection question

How do I do, so that I can get the name of the selected file OUTSIDE the 
open_file function, for instance in the MAIN function?

Create a variable outside the scope of the function, and set its value
inside the function



# snip

my $filename = '';

sub open_file {

        # stuff

        $filename = $fileselection->get_filename;

then other parts of the program can get the value of $filename as they
need it.

Seems pretty simple to me.
