Unable to select a file and/or a directory in FileBrowserSheet

    Description

      Hi,
      I'm writing a file chooser now with FileBrowserSheet. I found that I can only select a file when the mode is SAVE_AS and a directory when the mode is SAVE_TO.

      I would like a mode in which I can select either a file or a directory. I find no way to realize this. Please help.

      The function shoule be something like what Swing JFileChoose does below:

      JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
      ...
      chooser.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_AND_DIRECTORIES);
      int returnVal = chooser.showOpenDialog(this);

      My use case is like this. I am writing a tool which can do some conversion tasks for files. If user selects a file via FileBrowserSheet, the tool will just deal with the selected file. However, if the user selects a folder, the tool will scan and convert all files or filtered files under this folder recursively. This will make the tool look smarter.
