I have uploaded a custom component JFileChooser to the WindowBuilder palette and I want to use the desginer such that a button event brings up the file chooser.
When I try to drag-and-drop the file chooser into the Design pane I get the entire file chooser window. (see image and/or uploaded file)

index.php/fa/35431/0/

Any thoughts?

a button event brings up the file chooser
Then you want to add a button to your GUI, don't you? And add code that opens a JFileChooser when the button is pressed. So do you really need to add a JFileChooser to the GUI?

So from the palette I want to choose the JFileChooser and place it on top of a JButton?
I can code around this issue. Just would like to see how this is done in the WindowBuilder Designer.

No, you add a "JButton" to your GUI from the palette and then you add an "ActionListener" to the button and in the "actionPerformed()" method you open a "JFileChooser". Would you like me to post some sample code? Have you seen the tutorial entitled How to Use File Choosers ?
