files stored in DropBox
February 22, 2023 03:28PM
I have a client whose pictures were stored on a lan. Implementing a system to display them in my WinDev22 application was as simple as storing a link to their location but now the client wants to move those files to a DropBox folder and I am at a loss figuring out how to access them. I tried just storing a link (obtained from DropBox) but it just gives errors and fails and I believe the link is trying to download the file to the local machine; which I don't really want.
Has anyone else tried to implement this?

There is a DropBox API. But it looks like it is only for Web Apps and .NET. The web site for the Dropbox API is here; [www.dropbox.com]

As far as I could find out, there is no way to make a DropBox store look like a part of the Windows file system.

Hi Donald,

imho there is CloudMounter [cloudmounter.net] in order to accomplish that feat.

Kind regards,
