Hi
      I am writing a graphical editor for LaTeX documents. Therefore I want my app to only be able to open files with a '.tex' suffix. Is there an easy way to do this?
      Thanks, Nik.

In Open file Method
Procedure OpenFile(FileName :String);
Var Ext :String;
Begin
     Ext := UpperCase(ExtractFileExt(FileName));
    If  Ext =  '.TEX'  then
   Begin
        // Process Open File Here
   End
   Else
     ShowMessage('Error: Can't open TEX file only');
End;
