Introduction

The file browser is a dialogue that allows the user to select a single file from any directory. It is typically used when choosing a file for a particular action, such as opening a database in Gap or saving a trace file in Trev. The precise details of the layout may change depending on this context.The illustration below shows the file browser as displayed when opening a new file from within Trev. The `Formats' and `Filter' section here are used to select different file types. These dialogue components may not appear in all file browsers.

The `OK', `Filter' and `Cancel' buttons perform their usual tasks; `OK' accepts the file currently shown in the selection component, and `Cancel' quits the dialogue.
