Hello everyone,

I have a small problem that maybe somone could help me with. I have an app that lets me input raw sql commands and load sql scripts but what I would like to do and cannot accomplish is get the savefiledialog to save the contents of the textbox to a .sql file so I can use it later. I am able to get the box to open and I can get it to write the file but am not able to give a filename or get it to write the contents of the box

Thanks for the help.
Joe

Hi JoeDW,


            Dim fWriter As StreamWriter
            Dim sLine As String
            Dim sFileName As String
            Dim dresult As System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult

            dlgSave.CheckFileExists = False
            dlgSave.AddExtension = True
            dlgSave.Filter = "Excel Spreadsheet|*.xls|Comma Separated Values|*.csv|Tab Separated Values|*.tsv|Fixed Layout|*.txt|All Files|*.*"
            dresult = dlgSave.ShowDialog()

            Me.Refresh()

            If (dlgSave.FileName <> "") And (dresult = DialogResult.OK) Then

                sFileName = dlgSave.FileName

                fWriter = File.CreateText(sFileName)
                sLine = txtSQL.Text
                fWriter.WriteLine(sLine)
                fWriter.Flush()
                fWriter.Close()
            End IF


Cheers!
