Hello anyone!

I'm having serious problems with a school project. I need to know some things and hopefully you can help

1st question -------------------

I want to force the user to be able to ONLY open files of a certain extension, such as mp3, or avi, etc. How do I do that?

How can I have that to show in the open file dialog box? The default is *.* all files..... please help!


//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

if (ae.getSource()==abrir)
{
FileDialog file = new FileDialog (this, "Abrir Ficheiro...", FileDialog.LOAD);
file.show ();
String fileName = file.getDirectory () + file.getFile ();
System.out.println (fileName);

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

It works this way if I select the correct extension, but I guess you understand what i want to do...


----------------------------------

2nd question

I have some button created, but when I add an image icon to the button, it appears tiny in the applet, and you can't see the image.

abrir = new JButton(new ImageIcon("open.gif"));


Shouldn't it show up correctly?

---------------------------------------


If you can help I'll post more questions... I've been to many forums, irc, and no one seems to be helping....

Thanks for any hlp you might provide!
