it fixes the issue Of course , you can get some idea from this example; in Java Swing( I'm not sure how in JavaFX) you can filter files by name or extension like :
FileChooser fileChooser = new FileChooser();
FileFilter filter = new FileNameExtensionFilter("MP3 File","mp3");

JavaFX FileChooser

Tag : development , By : meehan

I hope this helps . A DirectoryChooser was added to JavaFX as part of the 2.1 release. Usage is:
DirectoryChooser chooser = new DirectoryChooser();
chooser.setTitle("JavaFX Projects");
File defaultDirectory = new File("c:/dev/javafx");
File selectedDirectory = chooser.showDialog(primaryStage);

JavaFX FileChooser in swing

this will help The code of that dialog has multiple problems besides the ones you mention. For example, it doesn't handle the situation when JavaFX platform shuts down right after isJavaFXStillUsable() is called, but before the call to Platform.runLater(), which will still make it hang forever. I don't like that huge synchronized block either, although there don't seem to be any real problems with that. I also don't get why "the stupid synchronization object had to be a field" - each invocation of chooseFileWithJavaFXDialog() is independent of each other, so it could just as well use a local final lock (even that array would do fine).
The right way to make JVM exit correctly is to call Platform.exit() when you are shutting down your application (perhaps in windowClosed() of your main window). You need to do this manually because the chooser class has no idea whether you need JavaFX any more or not, and there is no way to restart it once it has been shut down.

public class SynchronousJFXCaller<T> {

 * A utility class that summons JavaFX FileChooser from the Swing EDT.
 * (Or anywhere else for that matter.) JavaFX should be initialized prior to
 * using this class (e. g. by creating a JFXPanel instance). It is also
 * recommended to call Platform.setImplicitExit(false) after initialization
 * to ensure that JavaFX platform keeps running. Don't forget to call
 * Platform.exit() when shutting down the application, to ensure that
 * the JavaFX threads don't prevent JVM exit.

     * The factory should create and set up the chooser, for example,
     * by setting extension filters. If there is no need to perform custom
     * initialization of the chooser, FileChooser::new could be passed as
     * a factory.

it fixes the issue Yes that should be possible, you just need to know the right function to call. The API for FileChooser details them in its opening paragraph here.
    FileChooser fileChooser = new FileChooser();
    File selectedFile = fileChooser.showSaveDialog(null);
    FileChooser fileChooser = new FileChooser();
    File selectedFile = fileChooser.showOpenDialog(null);
    FileChooser fileChooser = new FileChooser();
    List<File> files = fileChooser.showOpenMultipleDialog(null);
