I got no response on cocoa list - maybe one of you guys can help me?
I am writing an app that requires to open files that are not always
owned by the user. If I select Open File from the menu I can navigate
to the directory, but all files are greyed out. Is there a way I can
make those files clickable, so they can be opened? Of course I will
put up a dialog that asks the user for a password. I looked through
the examples in /Developer but didn't see anything that may look like
it does this. Any pointers?
TextWrangler for instance has a popup menu that allows to open All
Files, so I probably need to do something similar.
