I can select a File or Files by using the FileDialog, and I can select a
Directory by using the DirectoryDialog, but what I want to do is allow the
user to select both in one dialog, a mixture of files and directories. Is
there such a widget?

Thanks,

Phil

Phil,

No, this is not supported by either FileDialog or DirectoryDialog. You can
log a Feature Request with Platform - SWT for this, though I'm not sure of
the native support that's available on the various platforms.
