I have an OpenFileDialog control on my main form. I was setting the default filename in the properties window and included an * by mistake, and now the property value field contains "Illegal characters in path" and I can't change it. I also can't delete the control. Whichever brilliant MS programmer came up with that idea should be shot. How can I fix or get rid of this ruined control?
Also, the Filter property on the control doesn't seem to be working. It contains:
"DVD Database Files (*.dvd)|*.dvd"
When the open dialog appears, DVD Database Files (*.dvd) is shown in the filter combo box at the bottom, but there are no files visible in the directory. I have several files with this extension in there, so something is wrong here. Same thing applies to my SaveFileDialog. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with this?
