public class FileDialog : CommonDialog
Public Class FileDialog
Inherits CommonDialog
This class is abstract. The current implementations in Wisej are OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog. You can override this class or OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog to add your own custom behavior and localization. You can:
  • Override PromptFileNotFound. It's called when the specified file doesn't exist and the property CheckFileExists is true.
  • Override CreateUI to create your custom Form when the method ShowDialog is called.
  • Set the DialogTemplate to a Form class that has a constructor that accepts FileDialog as the single argument to change the User Interface (UI) of the file dialog.
  • Override OnFileOk to provide your custom implementation of the actions to execute when the user presses the OK button.
You must add at least one FileSystemProvider to the Roots collection before showing the dialog.
