Problem in OpenFileRequester()

Post by akj »

Either I'm making a stupid mistake or there is a bug in OpenFileRequester() and SaveFileRequester() under Win32.

The following code fails to show any .TXT (or .txt) files whenever the 'Text files' option is selected, even when such files exist in the targeted folder. It is OK when 'All files' is selected. I am in Debug mode.

Code: Select all

OpenFileRequester("Load File", "", "Text files *.TXT | *.TXT | All files | *.*", 0)

You're using the filter wrong. Read the manual again. ;)

Try ... OpenFileRequester("Load File", "", "Text (*.txt)|*.txt| All files | *.*", 0)

OK, it was the space between the second .TXT and the following | that was causing the problem. I did not realise that whitespace was so critical.

Thanks for your help.
