How do I open the explorer to the directory I specify?

Example:
Code:
openExplorer(getMainForm().OpenDialog1.InitialDir)


As a result, a window from Windows opens at the given path.
Thanks

Edit:

Okay I found one way:
Code:
shellExecute(explorer, getMainForm().OpenDialog1.InitialDir)

Presumably "mf.OpenDialog1" implements its own default function at runtime.

If you trigger it, you may be able to implement some changes.

Here is an example;
Code:
if form2 then form2.destroy() form2 = nil end
form2 = createForm()
form2.Popupmode = 0;
form2.Position = poDesktopCenter
form2.Width = 200
form2.Height = 160

btn1=createButton(form2)
btn1.Left=20 btn1.Top=20 btn1.Width=110
btn1.caption="Path: C"

btn2=createButton(form2)
btn2.Left=40 btn2.Top=60 btn2.Width=110
btn2.caption="Path: Desktop"

btn3=createButton(form2)
btn3.Left=60 btn3.Top=100 btn3.Width=110
btn3.caption="Path: Temp"

od1 = getMainForm().OpenDialog1
dir1 = ([[C:\]])
dir2 = os.getenv("USERPROFILE") .. "\\Desktop";
dir3 = getTempFolder()

btn1.OnClick=function()
od1.InitialDir = dir1
od1.Execute()
  filename = od1.Filename
  print(filename)
end

btn2.OnClick=function()
od1.InitialDir = dir2
od1.Execute()
  filename = od1.Filename
  print(filename)
end

btn3.OnClick=function()
od1.InitialDir = dir3
od1.Execute()
  filename = od1.Filename
  print(filename)
end
