The following code example demonstrates initializing an OpenFileDialog, setting the Title and Filter properties, and allowing the user to select multiple files by setting the OpenFileDialog.Multiselect property to true. To run this example, paste the following code in a form containing an OpenFileDialog named OpenFileDialog1 and a Button named fileButton. Call the InitializeOpenFileDialog method in the form's constructor or Load method. The example also requires that the Click event of the Button control is connected to the event handler defined in the example.

void InitializeOpenFileDialog()
   this->OpenFileDialog1 = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::OpenFileDialog;
   // Set the file dialog to filter for graphics files.
   this->OpenFileDialog1->Filter =
      "Images (*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF)|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|" +
      "All files (*.*)|*.*";
   // Allow the user to select multiple images.
   this->OpenFileDialog1->Multiselect = true;
   this->OpenFileDialog1->Title = "My Image Browser";

void fileButton_Click( System::Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
private void InitializeOpenFileDialog()
    this.openFileDialog1 = new System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog();

    // Set the file dialog to filter for graphics files.
    this.openFileDialog1.Filter = 
        "Images (*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF)|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|" + 
        "All files (*.*)|*.*";

    // Allow the user to select multiple images.
    this.openFileDialog1.Multiselect = true;
    this.openFileDialog1.Title = "My Image Browser";

private void fileButton_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)

Private Sub InitializeOpenFileDialog()
    Me.OpenFileDialog1 = New System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog

    ' Set the file dialog to filter for graphics files.
    Me.OpenFileDialog1.Filter = _
    "Images (*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF)|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|All files (*.*)|*.*"

    ' Allow the user to select multiple images.
    Me.OpenFileDialog1.Multiselect = True
    Me.OpenFileDialog1.Title = "My Image Browser"
End Sub

Private Sub fileButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles FileButton.Click
End Sub


The string is placed in the title bar of the dialog box. If the title is an empty string, the system uses a default title, which is either "Save As" or "Open".
