Hi,

how can I set an OpenDialog to only accept picture files? The OpenDialog should only allow to open .bmp and .jpg files.
When I set the DefaultExt nothing happens...


thanks

1. You can use OpenPictureDialog
or
2. You should set property
Filter := All (*.*)|*.*|JPEG Image File (*.jpg)|*.jpg|JPEG Image File (*.jpeg)|*.jpeg|Bitmaps (*.bmp)|*.bmp;

DefultExt property is for adding extension to a file name when entered without extension and period.
