You could create a temp file containing all the files in a directory and use this file as the input for adding list items, yes. But why would you? There are OPEN/SAVE dialogs built-ins in Forms.

If you're convinced that the Forms-provided solutions are insufficient you can use:
1. to create a temp file with all filenames of a given directory.
- HOST('Dir _the_desired_directory_/B > temp_file');

2. to read the file:
Loop through the file and for each line of text you can create a list_element.

But I would advise to look up the possibilities of the WIN_API_DIALOG.OPEN_FILE and WIN_API_DIALOG.SAVE_FILE built-ins.
