I am using the following code to save a file . But Open statement is failing because of the \ character in the filename path. How to solve this. If hard code the filename like "c:\\abc.txt" it is working


CFileDialog fileDlg( FALSE, NULL, NULL, OFN_ALLOWMULTISELECT | OFN_HIDEREADONLY, "All Files (*.csv)|*.csv||", this);
      fileDlg.m_ofn.lpstrTitle = "Select the File";
      if ( fileDlg.DoModal() == IDOK)
      {
             CString m_txtFileName = fileDlg.GetPathName();
             CStdioFile m_logFile;            
             CFileException fileException;
      
if( !m_logFile.Open( m_txtFileName, CFile::modeCreate | File::modeWrite|CFile::shareExclusive , &fileException ) )
            {
                  #ifdef _DEBUG
                  afxDump << "File could not be opened " << fileException.m_cause << "\n";
                  #endif
                  return;
            }


            if( !m_logFile.Open( m_txtFileName, CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite|CFile::shareExclusive , &fileException ) )
            {
                        #ifdef _DEBUG
                  afxDump << "File could not be opened " << fileException.m_cause << "\n";
                  #endif
                  return 0;
      }

Remove OFN_ALLOWMULTISELECT flag. What is the value of m_txtFileName in debugger?

I dont think so the open will fail when u provide the m_txtFileName in the Open function.
Please see the file attributes

hi there

i created a little function for you try this

CString fixsplchar(CString mystring)
{
      CString tmpstring;
      int i;
      for(i=0;i< (int)mystring.GetLength();i++)
      {
            tmpstring+=mystring.GetAt(i);
            if(mystring.GetAt(i)==92)
                  tmpstring+=mystring.GetAt(i);
      }
      return tmpstring;
}

//this will take care of single backspace truncation in special
//processing and will provide a way for overriding the handling of
// escape char, pass the string directly from fileopendialog to this
// function and the returning string pass on to fileopen function.

//good luck buddy
