I'm trying to access layerfile metadata files *.lyr.xml using the GxDialog. There does not appear to be a standard GxFilter that recognizes these files. I came across a sample script that explains how to build a custom GxFilter, but it relies upon the GxFilterBasicTypes to grab the contents of a folder that your customization then parses to your desired type. Problem is GxFilterbasicTypes won't recognize these layerfile metadata files either. I asssume the double extensions are the reason these files are not recognized. Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
