FileSaveDialog() question

3 posts in this topic

I am using file save dialog with two filters and I find I still need to add the extension when I save a file with it. What I want to do is be able to find out what filter was selected and use that info to add the extension within the program. This is important because I manipulate the saved data differently depending on which file type is chosen. Is there any way to detect what filter was used when the save button is pressed?

The return is a string which includes the extension, which might not have been one of the options you gave. I don't understand why you say you need to add the extension. You can extract the extension from the returned string.

I want to the user of the program be able to save in only two file types, I want those extensions added by the file save dialog, the return string will then be evaluated for the extension that is present and a function based on that extension will be executed. I am looking for a method by which the user does not have to type the extension into the filesavedialog box, but instead the extension is added automatically based on the filter which is selected within the box (the application will allow for the possibility that the extension is added as well, so that there is no file.txt.txt). The goal is that whether the user types the extension or not, the application will be able to know what extension was desired based upon the filter that was chosen.

Does that make sense?
