Function opens a dialog box to allow the user to select a file.
Defines file filters. The 'save as type' list box may contain any number of entries that defines the type of file to be displayed. This argument defines the entries in this list box.
Each entry consists of a description followed by a pipe symbol ('|') then a list of file extensions separated by semi-colons (';'). Entries are also separated by the pipe ('|') symbol. For example, to list just schematic files enter:
Note that the text is enclosed in both single and double quotes. Strings in expressions are denoted by single quotes as usual but the semi-colon is normally used to separate commands on a single line. This is inhibited by enclosing the whole string in double quotes.
If you wanted to provide entries for selecting - say - both schematics and netlists, you could use the following:
"'Schematic files|*.sxsch;*.sch|Netlist files|*.net;*.cir'"
The default extension specified without the dot. This is the extension that will automatically be added to the file name if it does not already have one of the extensions specified in the filter.
