howto: empty strings in common dialog control ?

Hi experts,

I want that the common dialog control contains an empty
string, instead of a file name.

In Visual Basic I would do it like this:

CommonDialog1.filename = ""


In Delphi 3.0,  I tried

OpenDialog1.Files:=' ';

and I tried

Opendialog1.clear;

but both these statements are rejected by Delphi with
an error message.

Any suggestions for a correct solution ?

With kind regards

Christian
