Is there a command similar to, or a way to utilize either uigetfile, or uigetdir that allows a user to select either a file OR a directory and not just one or the other?
e.g. i have a function which will parse/import an entier directory, or individually specified files and i would like a UI window which allows the user to select individual files to be imported or a directory to be imported.

[file,folder]=uigetfile
if you want to have a file name with its path
fic=fullfile(folder,file)

The use uigetdir. If you want him to choose add a code like this
str ={'select file','select folder'}
s = listdlg('PromptString','Select a file:','SelectionMode','single','ListString',str)
if s==1
[file,folder]=uigetfile
else
folder=uigetdir
end
