FileNameEditor provides a file selection dialog box for file name selection and editing.

Notes to Inheritors You may inherit from this class to provide your own title for the dialog and your own file list filter extensions.

The following code example uses an EditorAttribute to associate the FileNameEditor with a property.

[EditorAttribute(typeof(System.Windows.Forms.Design.FileNameEditor), typeof(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))]
public string testFilename
        return filename;
        filename = value;
private string filename;       

/** @attribute EditorAttribute(System.Windows.Forms.Design.FileNameEditor.
    class, System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor.class)
/** @property 
public String get_TestFilename()
    return fileName;
} //get_TestFilename

/** @property 
public void set_TestFilename(String value)
    fileName = value;
} //set_TestFilename

private String fileName;
