Represents a file filter in a file dialog box displayed through the FileDialog object.
Assembly: office (in office.dll)
Each file filter determines which files are displayed in the file dialog box.
Use the Item method with the FileDialogFilters collection to return a FileDialogFilter object. Use the Add method to add a FileDialogFilter object to the FileDialogFilters collection. You can return the extensions that a FileDialogFilter object uses to filter files with the Extensions property, and you can return the description of the filter with the Description property; however, both of these properties are read-only. If you want to set the extension or description, you must use the Add method.
