JFileChooser Question

When I create a JFileChooser to save files with, the "Create New Folder" button is always disabled.

How do I enable this button?

Also, why is this button enabled on the open file version? I don't understand why a user would want to create a new folder in order to open an existing file as that file must be stored within a folder... or am I missing something.

Thanks.

Check out the setFileSelectionMode method; it does what you're looking for.
