File Chooser

[ Edited ]

Is there any way to invoke a File chooser that will return the path for the chosen file to my App?

I noticed the Facebook App opens a pop up when you're chosing what image to upload.

Re: File Chooser

There is not an API for this.  You would have to implement it yourself.  You can add menu items to the media application but it would not create the same interactions as you are describing.
