File picker sample app
The file picker sample application demonstrates how to create a UI component that presents a list of folders and files from which a user can select a file. The sample application also demonstrates how to specify the default search location for folders and how to filter files by file extension (for example, how to display only .mp3 files).
This sample features the following classes:
This class provides methods to access the user interface for file selection. You can use these methods to display the file selection screen, specify the default folder path, and filter files by file name extensions.
The sample application uses the setPath() method to specify a start path location from which the user can select files. The sample application also uses thesetFilter() method to present files that have a specific file name extension.
