Loading information into a modified file dialog during use

I have a project where the data being read had energy information. The basic data file is very large and I want to be able to extract a subset for subsequent analysis. I have already added two fields to the standard file dialog for the minimum and maximum energies. Ideally, I would like to do the following:
- When the user clicks on a file in the browser window, the code opens the file, checks for energy ranges in the header information, and loads that into the two fields.
- The user can then edit these fields to limit the data that is loaded.
- Upon clicking open, the data is read into the program.
Reading the header and data is already programmed into the project. The questions are can I do this quick open to load the data without exiting the dialog box and, if so, how?

@djsuson Hi, I'd send a signal from your dialog to be handled where needed to open the data.
