TOpenDialog: How to use this dialog...

Now... i want to know how to use the Topen DIalog to
do the following task:

after myOKbutton has been pressed...
i validate some data and
after i want to choose a file in
a specific directory... C:\DirectoryFiles\

to select a file of any type and when the user
selected the file... i need the filename...

I know... That TOpenDialog did a part...of
this job... let the user to choose a file...
but in the current directory...
How tell to the TopenDIalog to open my C:\DirectoryFiles
for any filetype:  C:\DirectoryFiles\*.*

Thanks you

And the filename..
For that Do OpenD.FileName
Putting OpenD. will bring up alot of different variables\ Property's to use

Write on the MenuItem click event handler:

if OpenDialog.Execute then
begin
   // here you can get the chosen filename, for example
   Memo.Lines.LoadFromFile(OpenDialog.FileName);

   // or load any other control you want
end;
