Default FR (API): GetUserFileNameForRead could return multiple files

Hi,
it would be nice if GetUserFileNameForRead could return multuple selected files.


It could be a simple CSV with a character unusued in file naming ('\n' should be good)


Thx!

edit: extra FR:

A way to select folders and
a way to Create files would be nice too !

In addition to that, it should allow returning non-existent files as well, so it could be used for saving files as well(when I type a filename into the filename-field of the dialog of a file, that isn't existing in the directory.).

Currently, it only supports existing files so it can be used only for Load-existing-file operations.

@XRaym
Maybe it would be better to have them in the csv-string separated by newlines, as filenames with path are never multilined-names.
Otherwise the comma/tick comma tick would cause problems with filenames containing ',' in it's name.

Also would be nice to have a flag for selecting folders.

newline char for files separation is good.


selecting folders is something I would really like too.


A way to Save is also needed.
