You can use a standard file dialog window. Use the FileNameGet command to launch a new dialog window. To allow multiple file selections in this new file dialog window, you have to pass a file name in the [FileDlgASCIIName] parameter of the FileNameGet command. Take a look at the following sample code:

FileDlgFilt = ""
FileDlgFilt = FileDlgFilt & "ASCII Import (*.*)"
FileDlgCaption = "Select the data file to load"
Call FileNameGet("ANY", "FileRead", FileDlgDir, FileDlgFilt, "test.dat", 1, FileDlgCaption)

Please, refer to the The Command FileNameGet(..) help for more information.
