, i was wondering , how do i use a gtk dialog via pyGTK to let me select a folder and it return all the files in that folder?
ive got some code that works to select multiple files but i cant seem to do the above.

just ask for any more details

If you setup your FileChooserDialog to select a folder, you can use glob.glob to list the the contents of the directory returned by get_filename().

you need to set the action to gtk.FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SELECT_FOLDER

thanks duff :) worked like a charm,

is there a way to check whether the item returned by glob in a folder is another folder or or a file?

last question, i promise :)

You could get that information from os.stat, but if you're needing to dive into nested directories, try os.walk instead of glob.
