Represents a common dialog box that displays the control that allows the user to open a file.


This class allows you to check whether a file exists and to open it. The ShowReadOnly property determines whether a read-only check box appears in the dialog box. The ReadOnlyChecked property indicates whether the read-only check box is checked.

OpenFileDialog is a modal dialog; therefore when shown, it blocks the rest of the script until the user has chosen a file. When a dialog is displayed modally, no input (keyboard or mouse click) can occur except to objects on the dialog.


See OpenFileDialog example.
