Displaying files to open...

Hi,
     I need to know how to display possible files for opening / saving. E.g. when you go to File / Open in a word processor, it shows you the contents of the directory and specifies only files with a certain suffix. Is there an easy way to do this?
Cheers, Nik

Sure, use the Delphi opendialog component and set the filters (the suffix)
