Am just learning Processing Not Java literate
I am experimenting with selectInput() for loading files,
All is good, as i can select a file load it etc.
However if instead of selecting the file by mouse pointer, I mistype the file name
I get the message The file ******** is missing or inaccessible etc
and the sketch stalls.
Is there a way of recovering from this without stopping the sketch,
or alternatively some safer way of loading files
you find in
the long way to do it,
selectInput(prompt, callbackMethod, file, callbackObject, parent, sketch)
so possibly in callback can deal with errors? ( not tested )
What operating system are you doing this on? What is the file browser / dialog system? For example, in MacOS I don’t believe you get an option to type.
