Selecting layerfile metadata files (.lyr.xml) in GxDialog

Discussion created by bkirchhoff on May 21, 2011
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.
