Hello Is it possible to interactively filter files at the gui level? I would like to open a dialog for a particular directory with a panel of all the file types with checkboxes and when checked create the filter and show or preferably redraw jfilechooser for the directory and filter. I know you can create a filter a priori, I am interested if it is possible interactively. This would also have to be threaded? Can someone provide a design/engineering direction? tia.
