    [ Ticket #1170 ] ability to select a directory in file chooser

    Summary:
    ability to select a directory in file chooser
    Original submission:
    Currently, the BioLegato file chooser will only allow you to select a file in the file chooser. eg.

    var "protfile"
    type file
    label "MULTIPLY-ALIGNED PROTEIN FILE"
    default ""

    I would also like to be able to select a directory eg.

    var "protfile"
    type directory
    label "MULTIPLY-ALIGNED PROTEIN FILE"
    default ""


    BioLegato should also give an error message if type is file and you select directory, or type is directory and you select a file.

    The file chooser refuses to select a directory. I think there is a simple API switch that tells the chooser whether you want to select a file or a directory.

    See birch --> File --> Switch

    For an example. This works if you type in the name of the directory (eg. /home/psgendb) but the file chooser won't let you select a directory.

    One other thing: Notice that in the "BIRCH directory" text box, "$BIRCH" is shown, rather than the value that the environment variable evaluates to.

    One change from the below PCD code -- instead of type directory, the implementation uses type dir, as follows:

    var "protfile"
    type dir
    label "MULTIPLY-ALIGNED PROTEIN FILE"
    default ""
