I am using save file dialog to save file file into a particular location say "C:\router\"
Is it possible to save a file just by clicking 'save' button to it name the file with the names in one of the text box and saves it in"C:\router\" without human interaction.

PS:
I am using this to create contents of the file
 {StringBuilder sr = new StringBuilder();
sr.AppendLine("interface Ethernet0");
            richTextBox1.Text = sr.ToString();

{StringBuilder sr = new StringBuilder();

sr.AppendLine("interface Ethernet0");

            richTextBox1.Text = sr.ToString();  
 

   private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            try

            {

                SaveFileDialog sfldg = new SaveFileDialog();

                sfldg.Filter = "Configuration File(*.cfg)|*.cfg";

                sfldg.DefaultExt = "*.cfg";
 

                if (sfldg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)

                {

                    using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(sfldg.FileName))

                    {

                        sw.Write(sr.ToString());

                        MessageBox.Show("Configuration file was saved.", "Success");

                    }

                }

            }

            catch (Exception ex)

            {

                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);

            }       

        }

Try this.
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            try

            {

                string fileName = @"C:\router\File1.txt";

 

                StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(fileName );

                    sw.Write(sr.ToString());

                    MessageBox.Show("Configuration file was saved.", "Success");

                    sw.Close();

            }

            catch (Exception ex)

            {

                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);

            }       

        }

Your question looks confusing. Assuming you want to take just the filename but not the folder name and save to an specific location, you can do something like:

using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(Path.Combine(@"C:\router\", Path.GetFilename(sfldg.FileName))))
