I was looking for a way to disable the File Selection in FDOM. I can see that there is

protected $allowUploadFolderSelection = true;


public function allowUploadFolderSelection()
   $this->allowUploadFolderSelection = true;

However there is not way aside from setting $allowUploadFolderSelection = false; to disable the Folder Selection interface. It would seem that at least on a per instance basis there is no way to disable the Folder Selection on FDOM or IDOM. Of course there may be something I am missing here but shouldn't the function be

public function disableUploadFolderSelection() {
   $this->allowUploadFolderSelection = falsel;

This seems to work for me:

   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      // Slideshow
      $manager = new ImageDataObjectManager(
         $this,             // Controller
         'Slideshow',       // Source name
         'SlideshowImage',    // Source class
         'Attachment',       // File name on DataObject
         array(             // Headings
         'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
         // Filter clause
         // Sort clause
         // Join clause

      $manager->allowUploadFolderSelection = false;
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Slideshow", $manager);

      return $fields;
