Routines needed to use CustomGetFile for selecting folders, rather than files. The style of the dialog box is taken from the Human Interface note on folder selection. The dialogs appearance and behavior should match that of other StandardFile dialogs. A button has been added to this version of the dialog allowing creation of new folders.
