[Sugar-devel] Limiting Object Chooser to specified MIME types

Aleksey, I was interested in your comment about wrapping Object Chooser
for backward compatibility. Currently both of my Activities use Object
Chooser, but don't make any attempt to limit what Journal entries can be
chosen. I would like to limit Read Etexts to the MIME types text/plain
and application/zip, and View Slides to just application/zip. In
Sayamindu's code he is using mime.GENERIC_TYPE_IMAGE. There does not
seem to be anything comparable that would select what I want selected.
I'm looking at the code for sugar.mime here:
http://api.sugarlabs.org/sugar.mime-pysrc.html I'm wondering if I could
make my own filter in my own Activities that would limit the Object
Chooser to just plain text and Zip files. I would of course follow your
suggestion for backward compatibility. James Simmons Message: 3 Date:

Just an option - you can use sugar-port API for object chooser instead of
native from sugar.
In that case you should create "port" directory and place there chooser.py
file from sugar-port project and use it according to .
On 0.84 it will open ObjectChooser with preselected mime type, on 0.82
just open ObjectChooser w/o errors.
