How to use OpenFileDialog to display all files in the folder except for some?

Hi experts

When I want the OpenFileDialog to display all files with some specific name (such as "abc") in the folder, I do this:
    var openFileDialog = new OpenFileDialog();
    openFileDialog.FileName = "abc*";

Open in new window


My question is how to do the opposite, i.e., I want the OpenFileDialog to display all EXCEPT those with some specific name (such as "abc") in the folder?

PS. I am using C#, .NET 3.5.
Thanks
Dominic
