I'm using Calabash plus Saxon to analyse and evaluate dwfx (zipped
autocad/revit) files. The result doc is for example a svg floor plan,
or a pie-chart with some statistic of how many doors or how much
concrete and steel will be used for the building.

I would like to let the user choose between different docs (created
with revit) which represent different options for the building and
lead to different costs. This in turn will induce new ideas how the
model could be changed or improved ... In short, I would like to have
the different dwfx in one directory, but let the user choose one by
selecting any one file from there.

It is all on the windows file system, and as the users are not very
experienced, it would be ideal if I could use the windows "open file"
dialogue for this.

Is this even possible ??? If not, I would be grateful for any suggestion!

Regards,
Manfred
