File selector php error when recurse is not set
Detailed Description:
Great module and use it alot. Love the file_selector but had a small problem
when adding it to a new site today.

This probably has something to do with CGExtensions 1.65.1 also, because I never
had this problem before. But when recurse is not set I get a white page and the
following error in the logs: "cge_dir::recursive_glob() must be of the type
integer, string given".

Traced it back to modules/CGExtensions/lib/class.cge_dir.php line 276 where I
noticed it had something to do with the int for recurse.

Maybe this can be given a default value. I fixed it for now by changing line 254
in class.ecb2_tools.php from

$fl = cge_dir::recursive_glob($dir, $filetypes, 'FILES', $excludes,


if (isset($this->options['recurse']) && $this->options['recurse'] != ''){
  $recurse = $this->options['recurse'];
else {
  $recurse = '-1';
$fl = cge_dir::recursive_glob($dir, $filetypes, 'FILES', $excludes, $recurse);

Hi Remco, 

Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like the module. I did too when it was still
ECB so I had to keep it alive, and I took over the development / maintenance.

The use of CGExtensions is from the previous ECB version, I have a partly
updated version of ECB2 that uses a core function instead of CGExtensions. Seems
to work well and I can drop the dependency on CGExtensions for this module.

Will have a few other upgrades included, plus have some major updates for the
next phase of development.
