I am most likely being dense, but is there a way of specifying a custom filetype in the Open File dialog?

Can you give a bit more detailed explaination of what you are trying to do please?

Sure, and thank you for the quick response.
My plug-in needs to load an external file that is not one of the standard file types (image/coffee/scene) included in the API's Open File dialog. I am hoping there is a simple way to modify the Open dialog's file type filter to at least include my file type. Even better if I can completely specify a filter list of my own. Right now, I am using a Filename entry in a BaseContainer.
The All Files (*.* ) filter will certinly work but a custom filter is nicer from a user perspective.

Got the confirmation from the developers, it's not possible at the moment to create custom extension filters.
