I am attempting to write a playlist for my media player which is already built. I have found a way to build a playlist for it but it would be helpful if I could save the contents of TextBox1 to a text file without using the save as. I am trying to get over a user inputting a file name for the finished text file so is it possible to write the file c: est.txt without using the save as dialog? I have found that I can use a vbs program file which creates a playlist in a folder. I save the vbs file text to the textbox then save it as a vbs file in the playlist directory, then execute the finished file to make the playlist.
I am trying to pull up a save file dialog, see code below:-
Shared Sub SaveAs() Dim StrPath As String = "" Dim strFile As String = ""[code].....
What I need is the folder location path of where I am trying to save the file, which I was hoping to get from strPath. The name of the file (which I can get from strFile)I also need the file extension which I was hoping to get from strExt
I'm using the FileSaveAs dialog control to allow the user to select a filename to save a file either as a doc file, an rtf file or a pdf file (that part was easy).However, after a bit of testing, it seems that the file extension doesn't automatically change when selecting the different file types.If the filename in the dialog is Foo.doc and I select FileType *.pdf and click "Save", my app still tries to save the file as a doc type.Virtually every other MS app automatically changes the extension to match a selected file type from the Office Suite to Paint. here's my code:
Dim dlg As New SaveFileDialog dlg.InitialDirectory = m_sReportFolder dlg.FileName = sProjectName & ".docx"[code]......
I am writing a Windows Form program to automatically download and store generated PDF reports from a web site using the WebBrowser Control. The web site uses Ajax to link an icon back to the source aspx file which then returns a PDF file.
The problem I have is that the WebBrowser control brings up the File Save As dialog box when the PDF file is returned and I can find no way of handling this to cature and save the returned file. I have found other examples of how to manage this using the Navagating event to validate the extension of the file that is being accessed (e.g. [URL] and, if not an HTM, file then use the HTTP Web control to directly download the file. Unfortunately this will not work as the call references a .aspx page.
I need to create a dotNet saveAs dialog, but I need to populate the file formats in the dialog. After the person have selected a file, it must connect that to a file format that I populate into the SaveAs command in the Excel Interop. After the Interop SaveAs command, I must check if the file have been saved correctly.
The program I am making uses a save dialog box and when I save a file it works fine. When I save and overwrite the file it seems to append the data. For some reason it keeps all previous data and just writes the data again. I'm using the XMLWriter to save the files. Is there any way of fixing this?

Currently I have three separate save commands in my program: Write to Plain Text, Write to HTML, and Write to Excel File.
Each one is invoked by a different command on a menu. I would like to combine these three into one Save File Dialog on the program. I know that I would have to edit the "Filter" property of the dialog box to add in the other two types.
My questions, how do I code the program to save the file based off what is chosen from the filter.[code]...
I am creating a text file using a save file dialog and copying the path to the text box which file is used to write from vb.net. when i try to write i get an error "The process cannot access the file '....fileName.txt' because it is being used by other program".

Public Sub writeInTextFile() Try Dim oWrite As New StreamWriter(TxtOutputPath.Text)

I'm new to Visual Basic with no programming in my background. I've created a application without to many problems until now. I've looked around msdn but could not find any tutorial on how to create a "standard" save file dialog box. What I have found is some instruction with a lot of assumptions made such as I've done this before.
Whenever I try, the save file dialog comes up when I hit No and same when I hit Cancel.... If My.Settings.SaveSTS = False Then MsgBox("Do you wish to save your changes?", MsgBoxStyle.YesNoCancel) If MsgBoxResult.Yes Then If My.Settings.OnceSaved = True Then Dim writer As New IO.StreamWriter(SaveName) [Code] .....

I have a client, who is running Windows 2008 Server 64 bit. He is running our software, it has a built in crystal report viewer functionality. The print dialogue just wouldn't work no matter what. It worked on our 32 bit box and we verified it. I verified it on our 64 bit box, and the print dialogue didn't open either. I did some research online. And one suggestion is to set m_printDlg.UseEXDialog = True. I tried that, but that did not work either...
Here is the code snippet. #Region " Methods " Public Overrides Sub PrintReport() ' NOTE: Do not use bug in reportviewer 'MyBase.PrintReport() Dim objRpt As ReportDocument = CType(Me.ReportSource, ReportDocument) [Code] .....
