Is it possible to use native photo/file select menu in Java application

Hi All,


I am writing an application with a selection menu of photo/file/taking picture.


On which I can select photo by thumbnail or browse folder in directory tree, also, taking a picture just by camera.


I found that  the "Select" menu inside email composer is 100% fit for my task (inside Messages->menu->Compose Email->Attach File, the popup window with "select", directory line, camera and thumbnails.) I wodner is it possible to call this menu or I need to write it by myself, or any source code which I can find from BB developer pages?


Thanks a lot

You'll need to build this within your application.  You could start with the example below and modify it so that it displays images instead of text filenames.
