    Question JFileChooser

    Hey guys! Good day to everyone

    I just had a quick doubt/problem with something i want to achieve, but i cant manage to do it yet. Its about the JFileChooser Swing component. It works wonders, but i want the JFileChooser to only display .TIF files (i just want to learn how to display a type of file actually) and no other than .TIF Files. Can anyone teach me how to this please?

    Thank you all, have a great day!
