Hi folks,

I´d like that, when i call my 'FileName' property of my 'OpenDialog1' component, just *.MDB files appears in the dialog (not all kind of files).

Do you know how i do that?

Thx. very much!

Set the Filter property to:  *.MDB

If you click on the ellipsis in the object inspector, a property editor will open up, you can fill in the name, then the filter as *.mdb

Tada!

Or, you can do it manually, say in a FormCreate method:

OpenDialog1.Filter:='MDB Files|*.mdb';

Enjoy!

Hi!

Was there something wrong with my answer, that you felt it only deserved a "C"? I thought it was quick and accurate, and addressed the problem directly.
