Save File Dialog Vista

Post by Bennyr89 » Mon Sep 21, 2009 4:08 pm


our .Net 2.0 based SUT has the standard Save File dialog.
We enter a file name and press the "save" button.
Within windows XP everything works fine.
Wintih vista the dialog doesnt recognize out entered file name.
Instead it saves contents as a default file name.

How can we circumvent this behaviour?
Some "invalidate" or "update" features?

What code are you using to enter text into the file name? Are you actually using the keyboard to "type" the text or are you setting the text property to the text you want? If the latter, you may want to switch to "typing" with the functionality.
