BlocStyler "File Selection With Browse" select multiple files possible?

A colleague asked if the "File Selection With Browse" block (NativeFileBrowser) would allow selection of multiple files. When designing a dialog hovering over the block in the catalog pops up the following tooltip:

This plainly suggests that it can allow multiple file selection, but I can see no way to enable this functionality. Or am I mis-understanding the tooltip?

@Inch,

 

Looking at NX 11, I don't see any properties to enable this. I do notice that the tooltip text has been changed at some point between the version you are using and NX 11. The NX 11 tooltip reads:

I would assume that multiple selection was never available and the tooltip text you are seeing was incorrect.

 

Please log an ER asking for this additional functionality. The file selection with browse block is in dire need of updates to bring it's functionality more in line with the System.Windows.Forms capabilities.
