Property Value

A string specifying a user-friendly name for each accepted file type and file specifications for each type.

The format for the Filter property for each type is as follows:

  1. A user-friendly description.

  2. A vertical bar (|).

  3. File specifications, separated by a semicolon (;).

  4. Another vertical bar (|).

For example, a filter that specifies text files, HTML files, and all files would look like the following example, in EN-US locale:

Text Files(*.txt)|*.txt|HTML Files(*.htm;*.html)|*.htm;*.html|All Files(*.*)|*.*|

A localized version of this string is the default value for the Filter.

Notes to Inheritors: Override the Filter property to return a value that is different from the default.
