Hi,

I`m using a pretty bog standard jFileChooser.showSaveDialog() method to save files from the "text editor" I am developing as a project.  What I am looking to add to this jFileChooser.showSaveDialog is certain file extensions in the drop down box.

I've had a look on the iNet & EE but could not come across anything, can someone point me in the right direction please ?

You need a FilenameExtensionFilter. Example in API docs:
