Remarks

The DXOpenFileDialog provides the standard open file dialog functionality and supports the DevExpress theming mechanism that allows your applications to look consistent.

The DXOpenFileDialog features:

When an end-user changes a current directory in the DXSaveFileDialog or DXOpenFileDialog, the application's current directory changes too. The current directory's path is stored in the DXOpenFileDialog property. You can get the application's current directory using the WPF standard GetCurrentDirectory method.

The code sample below demonstrates how to run the DXOpenFileDialog that allows end-users to browse and open images.

private void button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
    var fileDialog = new DXOpenFileDialog();
    fileDialog.Filter = "Image Files|*.BMP;*.JPG;*.GIF|All files|*.*";
    fileDialog.ShowDialog();
}
