I need a file open dialog in the Forms application, for the user to browse a directory located on the server.
i.e. the user presses a button, gets a file open dialog to browse a directory, and selects a file, which gives me the name of the file, so that I then can show it programatically with web.show_document.

I tried get_file_name  function (not client_get_file_name, because the files are on the server), but just nothing happens: neither a file open dialog box, nor any error message.
