// Open file async
StandaloneFileBrowser.OpenFilePanelAsync("Open File", "", "", false, (string[] paths) => {  });

// Open file with filter
var extensions = new [] {
    new ExtensionFilter("Image Files", "png", "jpg", "jpeg" ),
    new ExtensionFilter("Sound Files", "mp3", "wav" ),
    new ExtensionFilter("All Files", "*" ),
var paths = StandaloneFileBrowser.OpenFilePanel("Open File", "", extensions, true);

StandaloneFileBrowser.SaveFilePanelAsync("Save File", "", "", "", (string path) => {  });

// Save file with filter

    • Requires .NET 2.0 api compatibility level
    • Async dialog opening not implemented, ..Async methods simply calls regular sync methods.
    • Plugin import settings should be like this;

  • Mac

    • Sync calls are throws an exception at development build after native panel loses and gains focus. Use async calls to avoid this.


  • Basic upload/download file support.
  • File filter support.
  • Not well tested, probably not much reliable.
  • Since browsers require more work to do file operations, webgl isn't directly implemented to Open/Save calls. You can check CanvasSampleScene.unity and canvas sample scripts for example usages.
