FileSaveDialog, how to add filter choosen in file name.

Recommended Posts



Pending a lot of weeks, I searshed how to add the filter choosen with FileSaveDialog, and I didn't find a solution.

The FileSaveDialog or FileOpenDialog filters extensions only but it does not add extension automatically.

We must use : _WinAPI_GetSaveFileName() with #Include <WinAPI.au3>.

See this simple example :

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <WinAPI.au3>

#include <Array.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 212, 146, 192, 124)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 64, 56, 75, 25)


#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()


Case $nMsg=$Button1

$aFile = _WinAPI_GetSaveFileName("Save file","Text(*.txt)|OGH Files(*.ogh)")



Switch $nMsg





_WinAPI_GetSaveFileName open a SaveFileDialog and create an array. This array contain in [1] the path ( disk\folder(s) ), in [2] the file name and filter choosen like extension.
