Title: Retrieving Registry Information
Post by: bettman on December 11, 2019, 09:42:19 am
Was wondering if there was a function (similar to AskFileName) for the Registry? I have a dialog that has some editboxes which are used to set the regpath, item and data to a file. I would like to be able to present some kind of GUI to the end user such that they could traverse the registry rather than to hand type the values into the dialog fields. Does something like that exist?

No function like that exists in WIL.

I assume you are familiar with all the Registry functions but you would have to build the interface.

Last I checked, that utility was called REGEDIT.EXE.

If the desire is to re-implement the functionality of REGEDIT in a WinBatch script, then WIL Dialogs would need to support tree-view controls.
