using pick file: filter list not working?

I'd like to filter the files my users can open, as most apps do, when I use pick file -- but when I add any filters to the filter list, all files appear grayed out, not just the type I specified in the filter list...

eg, I want to only allow them to select files of type "sqlite"

db_file = Pick File( "choose database file", "", {"sqlite files|sqlite"});

but in fact all file types are grayed out when script is executed, and also, I dont see the expected dropdown in the file dialog box where you choose the file type you want

using JMP 9 on mac os 10.8

Hi jmp_ingbean,

That's interesting. I can make it work with other file extensions but for some reason I can't get it to work with .sqlite and .db3.

Contact JMP Technical Support and they can investigate and tell you what's going on.
