FileDialog Extension Filter does not work ?! [message #444574] Fri, 15 October 2004 10:13 Go to next message

Hello
I have tried to to set the filter extension in my SaveDialog to xml files.
But the FileDialog doesn't show any file in the Directory!??
Another question, is it possible to define a default extension. For example:
When the user write "myfile", I want to store this as "myfile.xml".

Here is the Codesnippet:

FileDialog dialog = new FileDialog(this.getSite().getShell(), SWT.SAVE);
dialog.setText("Save as...");
dialog.setFilterNames(new String[]{"xml"});
dialog.setFilterExtensions(new String[]{"xml"});
String path = dialog.open();


Thanks in advance!

Rene,

Your filter extension string should be "*.xml", not just "xml". This should
explain why all of your files are being filtered out; if this change does
not make some or all of them reappear then please log a bug report with
Platform - SWT.

There is no way to set a default extension into a FileDialog, but since the
dialog just returns to you whatever the user entered, you can just detect
the case where no extension was specified and add it on yourself afterwards,
no?

Blame on me!! ;-)

It have to be *.xml!!! Thanks for your Tipp!
And if no extension is entered, the FileDialog uses xml. I don't have to set
the default manually.
I think I am a bit too much Microsoft (MFC, .Net WinForms) misguided. ;-)
