Examples

The following example saves the contents of the RichTextBox into an ASCII text file. The example uses the SaveFileDialog class to display a dialog to request the path and file name from the user. The code then saves the contents of the control to that file. The example uses this version of the SaveFile method to specify that the file be saved as an ASCII text file instead of the standard Rich Text Format. This example assumes that the code is placed in a Form class that has a RichTextBox control named richTextBox1.

public:
   void SaveMyFile()
   {
      // Create a SaveFileDialog to request a path and file name to save to.
      SaveFileDialog^ saveFile1 = gcnew SaveFileDialog;
      
      // Initialize the SaveFileDialog to specify the RTF extension for the file.
      saveFile1->DefaultExt = "*.rtf";
      saveFile1->Filter = "RTF Files|*.rtf";
      
      // Determine if the user selected a file name from the saveFileDialog.
      if ( saveFile1->ShowDialog() == System::Windows::Forms::DialogResult::OK &&
         saveFile1->FileName->Length > 0 )
      {
         // Save the contents of the RichTextBox into the file.
         richTextBox1->SaveFile( saveFile1->FileName, RichTextBoxStreamType::PlainText );
      }
   }
public void SaveMyFile()
{
   // Create a SaveFileDialog to request a path and file name to save to.
   SaveFileDialog saveFile1 = new SaveFileDialog();

   // Initialize the SaveFileDialog to specify the RTF extension for the file.
   saveFile1.DefaultExt = "*.rtf";
   saveFile1.Filter = "RTF Files|*.rtf";

   // Determine if the user selected a file name from the saveFileDialog.
   if(saveFile1.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK &&
      saveFile1.FileName.Length > 0) 
   {
      // Save the contents of the RichTextBox into the file.
      richTextBox1.SaveFile(saveFile1.FileName, RichTextBoxStreamType.PlainText);
   }
}

Public Sub SaveMyFile()
    ' Create a SaveFileDialog to request a path and file name to save to.
    Dim saveFile1 As New SaveFileDialog()
    
    ' Initialize the SaveFileDialog to specify the RTF extension for the file.
    saveFile1.DefaultExt = "*.rtf"
    saveFile1.Filter = "RTF Files|*.rtf"
    
    ' Determine if the user selected a file name from the saveFileDialog.
    If (saveFile1.ShowDialog() = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK) _
        And (saveFile1.FileName.Length) > 0 Then
    
        ' Save the contents of the RichTextBox into the file.
        richTextBox1.SaveFile(saveFile1.FileName, _
            RichTextBoxStreamType.PlainText)
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

Use the members of this enumeration when calling the LoadFile and SaveFile methods of the RichTextBox control.
