View Full Version : Filename of current max file open?

03 March 2005, 03:40 AM
Hey gurus, I've been scouring the dictionary for this one (damn, max has a lot of file operations!), but I can't seem to find a function for grabbing the name of the currently open maxfile. Am I stupid, or is it slightly more obscure than a simple getCurrentFile?

there's a system global called maxFileName that holds this name.

hOpe this helps,

You just got your own entry in the MAXScript Reference's FAQ section! :)

The 7.5 revision of the help will contain a FAQ topic explaining the maxFilePath and maxFileName globals. (Yes, you are not the first one to ask about them this week!)

It is ready and about to ship!
Watch for an announcement
