How do I get the Open File item on the File menu into my platform application?

Note: These pages are being reviewed.

The Open File menu item is a part of the User Utilities module, in the ide cluster. This module can be added to your project using the Libraries page of the module property sheet. It must be also added to the suite (your suite > Project properties, Libraries > ide > User Utilities)

The User Utilities module also adds the Find in Files feature and support for PDF files (they are recognized and can be opened by double-clicking on them).
