[OpenMap Users] Determining Shapefile contents

This question is related to ESRI Shapefiles.
When accessing a list of shapefiles from an ESRI product such as ArcView, the browser is able to display different icons for different files indicating the type of data contained within. For example, if a shapefile contains area data, a small 'area' icon is displayed next to the file name.
Is there a way to determine the type of file contents using ShapeLayer (or associated classes)? I would like my file browser to display a similar icon so that my user will know what type of data to expect. Also, for areas, I will give them a choice of fill color.
