Thank you for your reply.

I decided to use JFileChooser instead of FileBrowserSheet for now
because the current functionality of FileBrowserSheet is limited by
bug/design. In addition to the two issues I already mentioned, I need
to customize file sort order so files are sorted such as "ABC1.txt,
ABC2.txt, ABC10.txt, ABC20.txt" instead of "ABC1.txt, ABC10.txt,
ABC2.txt, ABC20.txt." I found it is fairly easy to extend JFileChooser
for this customization, but it is difficult with FileBrowserSheet. A
wonderful point, however, is that JFileChooser works beautifully with

I would also like to add that FileBrowserSheet.setRootDirectory should
probably be named setCurrentDirectory, or should be documented as
such. It was misleading to me. No offence ;)

For the second issue, a small sample app to reproduce the problem would be helpful. Thanks.
