Howto Use TSaveDialog
- Place the SaveDialog widget on your form (anyplace, since it will be not visible).
(It is the second left dialog under Dialogs tab)
- Add a memo in the form.
- Add a button in the form.
The Object Inspector will display the properties of the object Button1. Change a property named 'Caption', with the displayed value 'Button1' to 'Save'. Click on the Events tab on the Object Inspector. Select the box to the right of OnClick: a smaller box with three dots (... ellipsis) appears. Click on this, you are taken automatically into the Source Editor and your cursor will be placed in a piece of code starting. Completion code:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click( Sender: TObject ); begin if SaveDialog1.Execute then Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile( SaveDialog1.Filename ); end;
The Filename property returns the full filename including drive and path.
