Simulink Mask Control: File Explorer

Is it possible to create functionality like a "file explorer" control for a mask control? I'd like for my mask to bring up a file explorer window on a button press -- the selection from which gets dumped to a edit box.
At the moment, I can only use an edit box with no file explorer to specify a path.

The required functionality is illustrated by the following example. The step by step process is as follows:
1) While adding the Mask, we can add a Edit box and button to the Mask.
2) The properties of the Edit box are as follows:
3) The properties of the button are as follows:
The callback function is to be added as follows:
In the callback function, we are utilizing uigetfile to open up the File Explorer and there by extracting the file name and path name information and assigning to the Edit box using Simulink.Mask.get function.
The final mask looks as follows:
For more information you could look at the documentation pages of uigetfile and Simulink.Mask.get functions.
Hope this helps!
