JFileChooser text field

Is there any way to validate the textfield that is part of the JFileChooser and prevent the 'Save' button from closing the dialog if there is an error?
I want the user to select a directory, and am not adverse to them adding a string where I would have to create a directory, however, I don't want the user to enter text that is invalid as part of a filename. For example \\\ or *?
