FileSaveDialog for .ini files?

4 posts in this topic

I've been trying to learn how to use ini files. I'm doing alright, but I'm stuck at the FileSaveDialog() command. This is probably something simple I'm overlooking, but it's not saving the file with the .ini extension at the end.

$file = FileSaveDialog("Save As...", @ScriptDir,  "All (*.ini)"

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a limitation of the program. It doesn't place the .ini at the end of my file name.

Here's my whole script if you're curious. I just wrote it for practice, and to learn how to use .ini files.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe
trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.
