OpenFileDialog.Filter and the Mac RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    If I set the Filter property of the OpenFileDialog class to "*.dmg" and use Firefox on the Mac, only dmg files with a single period are selectable.

    For example,

    The following files could be selected.

    a b c.dmg

    The following files could not be selected.


    If I use Safari on the Mac, nothing is selectable.

    I need the filter to allow any file that ends in .dmg to be selectable. How is this done?

  • Haven't heard of this one before. Might want to report it in the bug forum here. You could also try making sure you have the exact syntax from the docs.

    Can you post the code you're using the create the dialog?
