Osx long filenames truncated

 Osx long filenames truncated

Hi,
I'm trying RB 3.52 under OSX 10.1.2 and with GetOpenFolderItem(...) i get
filenames "scrambled"/truncated, e.g. "very long filename under mac osx.txt"
becomes "very long filename un#61231.txt".
Does a workaround exist or have I overseen something?
Thanks

In 3.5.2, I don't think so, but in 4.0 try looking at f.DisplayName.

Cheers,
