# Using two Python Addin Combo Boxes to choose Folder then Layer

I am trying to create a Python add-in for ArcMap for users to quickly select layer files from within several different folders. This will require 2 combo boxes. User selects the folder from the first combo box, then the layerfile from the second combo box. The second combo box is populated based on the folder selected in the first.

I have found a couple of questions on here similar to this: Using two Python Addin Combo Boxes to choose feature class first then field from chosen feature class? and Dynamically adding items into one python addin Combobox from another?

I have successfully copied and pasted PolyGeo's code for selecting feature class then field, but when I try and change the code to select folder then layer file, I can't get it to work. The first combo box displays the folders correctly, but the second combo box is blank. Can anyone help?

Code below. I am a beginner with ArcPy and add-ins.

import arcpy

class ComboBoxFolders(object):

def __init__(self):
arcpy.env.workspace = r"C:\\EditData\\Folders\\"
self.items = arcpy.ListWorkspaces("*", "Folder")
self.editable = True
self.enabled = True
self.dropdownWidth = 'WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW'
self.width = 'WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW'
def onSelChange(self, selection):
ComboBoxLayers._hook.items = [x.name for x in arcpy.ListFiles(selection)]

class ComboBoxLayers(object):

def __init__(self):
self.items = []
self.editable = True
self.enabled = True
self.dropdownWidth = 'WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW'
self.width = 'WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW'
ComboBoxLayers._hook=self
def onSelChange(self, selection):
mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")
