I have not been able to figure how to restrict JFileChooser to only let me look at ONE directory. I have scanned through the anwers in the JFileChooser section, although, I didn't see a jfilechooser answer, I did see one thought that I hadn't considered, use JDialog to show files in a single directory and let my user choose from this view. I have worked at that JDialog solution but just can't figure it out. Does anyone know how to emulate JFileCHooser's ability to select a file from a directory by using JDialog? Maybe someone knows how to restrict JFileChooser to only look at one directory and NOT let the user change to another directory?? Either one, its all the same to me.
