#include <WScom.h>
#include <WSCfunctionList.h>
#include <WSCbase.h>
#include <WSCfileSelect.h> //(A)
#include <WSCmessageDialog.h> //(B)
//Function for the event procedure
void btnep2(WSCbase* object){
  //Access to the global instance of the WSCfileSelect class.
  WSCfileSelect* fs = WSGIappFileSelect(); //(C)
  fs->setProperty(WSNmaskFileName,"cpp");  //(D)
  fs->setProperty(WSNdefaultPosition,True); //(E)
  long ret = fs->popup();                  //(F)

  //Access to the global instance of the WSCmessageDialog class.
  WSCmessageDialog* msg = WSGIappMessageDialog(); //(G)
  msg->setProperty(WSNwidth,500);                 //(H)
  msg->setProperty(WSNheight,120);                //(I)
  msg->setProperty(WSNdefaultPosition,True);      //(J)

  if (ret == WS_DIALOG_OK){           //(K)
    WSCstring  str;
    str << fs->getFileName() << " is selected.";
  }else if (ret == WS_DIALOG_NO){     //(L)
    msg->setProperty(WSNlabelString,"Nothing is selected.");
  }else if (ret == WS_DIALOG_CANCEL){
    msg->setProperty(WSNlabelString,"The selection is canceled.");
    msg->popup();                     //(M)

At first, include the header,WSCfileSelect.h, access to them. A global instance of WSCfileSelect class is already prepared, and it is possible to access by the global function WSGIappFileSelect() at (C). Set the property of it at (D),(E), and indicate it by the popup() method at (F), and then the popup() method returns that selection is done.
