Property Value


The filter string that can be used to filter the file list of the dialog box.


The Filter property specifies a filter string with two filter options: one for common image file extensions (*.gif, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.bmp, *.wmf, *.png), and one for all files (*.*).

A filter string contains one or more filter options. Each filter option contains a description of the filter, followed by the vertical bar (|) and the filter pattern. The strings for different filtering options are separated by the vertical bar.

The following is an example of a filter string that contains two filter options: "Bitmap Files (*.bmp)|*.bmp|All Files (*.*)|*.*".

You can specify several filter patterns in a filter option by separating the filter patterns with semicolons. The following is an example of a filter string in which the first filter option specifies three filter patterns: "Image Files(*.bmp;*.jpg;*.gif)|*.bmp;*.jpg;*.gif|All Files (*.*)|*.*".
