Examples

The File picker sample demonstrates how to specify the file types that the user can see and pick from in the file picker.

FileOpenPicker openPicker = new FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.ViewMode = PickerViewMode.Thumbnail;
openPicker.SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId.PicturesLibrary;
openPicker.FileTypeFilter.Add(".jpg");
openPicker.FileTypeFilter.Add(".jpeg");
openPicker.FileTypeFilter.Add(".png");
// Create the picker object and set options
var openPicker = new Windows.Storage.Pickers.FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.viewMode = Windows.Storage.Pickers.PickerViewMode.thumbnail;
openPicker.suggestedStartLocation = Windows.Storage.Pickers.PickerLocationId.picturesLibrary;
// Users expect to have a filtered view of their folders depending on the scenario.
// For example, when choosing a documents folder, restrict the filetypes to documents for your application.
openPicker.fileTypeFilter.replaceAll([".png", ".jpg", ".jpeg"]);
FileOpenPicker openPicker = new FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.ViewMode = PickerViewMode.List;
openPicker.SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId.DocumentsLibrary;
openPicker.FileTypeFilter.Add("*");
var openPicker = new Windows.Storage.Pickers.FileOpenPicker();
openPicker.viewMode = Windows.Storage.Pickers.PickerViewMode.list;
openPicker.suggestedStartLocation = Windows.Storage.Pickers.PickerLocationId.documentsLibrary;
openPicker.fileTypeFilter.replaceAll(["*"]);

Remarks

Collection member lists

For JavaScript, FileExtensionVector has the members shown in the member lists. In addition, FileExtensionVector supports a length property, members of Array.prototype, and using an index to access items.

Enumerating the collection in C# or Microsoft Visual Basic

A FileExtensionVector is enumerable, so you can use language-specific syntax such as foreach in C# to enumerate the items in the collection. The compiler does the type-casting for you and you won't need to cast to IEnumerable<String> explicitly. If you do need to cast explicitly, for example if you want to call GetEnumerator, cast to IEnumerable<T> with a String constraint.
