I am not sure if this is even possible, but it's worth a question...
Is there a way in a flex/air to open the "file open dialog" in thumbnail view? (it opens automatically in list view)
I have an application that needs to open images and it would look much better if it could open in thumbnail view so that the user can see what (s)he is selecting.
There is no API in Adobe AIR to force the "open dialog" to open in thumbnail mode.
Did you ever figure this out? I too need to do this.
