I am designing an Image Editor to work on some image manupalation techniques.
I want my application to allow the user to browse files in his directory and open up a file of his choice.
Is there any class which enables us to browse the directories.?
thanks a lot.

Hi Divya,
You can go for swings that are very cool to use. Try javax.swing.JFileChooser, instead of AWT.

Thanks,<p>Vijay<p>The Hand that gives, Gathers.
