OpenFileDialog Help

nethawknethawk Member Posts: 7
Hey guys I've found a couple of posts about this but I just can't seem to pull it off in my program. What I want to do is use 'OpenFileDalog' to take the filename from a file the user selects, so I can assign it to a variable. I dont want the the path or file extention.

Heres the program i want to change:

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim openFile As String
OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
openFile = OpenFileDialog1.FileName
Text1.Text = openFile
End Sub

Cheers.

    To just select the filename without extension use:
    [code]
    Dim sFile As String = OpenFileDialog1.FileName
    Dim sName As String

    sName = Strings.Right(sFile, Len(sFile) - Strings.InStrRev(sFile, ""))
    sName = Strings.Left(sName, Strings.InStrRev(sName, "."))

    MsgBox("File 'name' is " & sName)
    [/code]

    The way I see it... Well, it's all pretty blurry
