request for opendialog

    I don't know if its possible, but I guess it is: If I open a dialog with [opendialog] the filebrowser just says "open" in its window bar. I'd like to be able to set the window bar to anything I want, like for example "choose documentation path" or "where is your fart"...
    To achieve this I suggest to send it massage "dialog for example "dialog where the hell is jour trash" and it would display "where the hell is your trash" instead of "open" from now on any time I bang it... (Same applies for savedialog)
    That would be great...

      Navigation Services on Mac OS give the standard Open File dialog more configuration parameters than there are RTFM questions on this list;- So what you ask for would be eminently possible. I assume the Windows API also gives plenty of options. But the two APIs are probably sufficiently different that fully supporting both may not be much fun.
      Still, it's a nice idea that would offer apps developed in Max a little more polish.

      while we're at it, Id love if open dialog did not block IO, similar to how the 'read' message to jit.qt.movie allows processing to still happen in the background.
