Windows file selection interface

I had a question directed to me a few months back and I answered incorrectly because I was not aware of a new feature in R5. I have been asked this question by many people and had never seen the answer -- so hopefully this will help some people who don't know how to access the Windows file open dialog that gives your users the familiar look and feel of windows folder navigation.

stringarray = notesUIWorkspace.OpenFileDialog( multipleSelection [, title$ 
[, filters$ [, initialDirectory$ [, initialFile$
]]]] )

This is a clipping from the Domino R5 Designer help file.

dim fn as variable 'to capture array
dim ws as new NotesUIWorkspace

fn = ws.OpenFileDialog( False, "File selection", "" )

Now you can treat fn as an array of filenames that the user selected.
