  This would be a useful addition to fltk.

char *fl_native_file_chooser(const char *message,const char *pat,const char *fname,int relative=0) {

    static char   retname[FL_PATH_MAX];           // Returned filename

    char *tmpstr = NULL;


    Fl_Native_File_Chooser *fnfc = new Fl_Native_File_Chooser;




    if (!fname || !*fname) fname = ".";


    // Show native chooser

    switch ( fnfc->show() ) {

        case -1: 

            break;  // ERROR

        case  1: 

            break;  // CANCEL


            tmpstr = (char *)fnfc->filename();

            break;  // FILE CHOSEN



    if (tmpstr && relative) {

        fl_filename_relative(retname, sizeof(retname), (char *)fnfc->filename());

        return retname;


    return tmpstr;
