The DefaultFileName property specifies a file name that will be used when saving a newly created document. The DXRichEditDocumentSaveOptions.DefaultFormat property specifies a format for saving a newly created document. The file extension for the specified file format is added automatically.

If the document has already been saved, the Document.SaveDocument method saves it to the file with the name defined in the DXRichEditDocumentSaveOptions.CurrentFileName property.

To specify a name that is suggested in the SaveAs file dialog invoked via the SaveDocumentAsCommand command, use a Custom SaveAs Command technique illustrated in the following code snippet. The “C:\Temp\SavedDocument.rtf” name is the default file name specified for the Save As dialog.
