Can FileSavePicker be told to start from a specific location? RRS feed

  • Question

  • SuggestedStartLocation can be used to tell FileSavePicker to start from one of the predefined locations such as Desktop, HomeGroup, etc.  Is there a way to tell  SuggestedStartLocation  to start from a specific location (e.g. c:\temp\pictures)?

  • No, just the suggestions for the standard locations.

  • Thanks, Rob, for the prompt response.  It would be nice if FileSavePicker somehow knows where FileOpenPicker picks the file for processing and start from there.

  • You can provide a default file via the SuggestedSaveFile | suggestedSaveFile property

  • I will give it a shot.  The app does not overwrite the processed file. It needs to create a new one. I will figure out what happens if the suggested file is not accepted by the user.
