Question about custom C# extensions and File I/O

Hello everyone,

I am currently building a custom c# extension in Visual Studio for Spotfire. What I would like to be able to accomplish is to have Spotfire take a filepath to a folder and then open each file inside, store each file in a seperate data table, and then create a scatter plot for each data table. I already have a custom tool in the Tools drop down and have a Dialog Box I made using Winforms in Visual Studio. All of the prompts are set up and the only thing that I am lacking is the ability to import more than one file at a time. I have to manually input the filepath for each file in the Folder to import the files into spotfire. Does anyone know how I might be able to input the path to the folder and have it go through and open each file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

David
