    Multiple file Filters for one filter option

    Pretty simple. Let's say I wanted an option under the filter my GetOpenFileName window named "C/C++ Source Files (*.c, *.cpp)." How would I write out the filter's string so that it would include both types of files for that option?

    Google would have answered this a lot faster than me!

    The first string in each pair is a display string that describes the filter (for example, "Text Files"), and the second string specifies the filter pattern (for example, "*.TXT"). To specify multiple filter patterns for a single display string, use a semicolon to separate the patterns (for example, "*.TXT;*.DOC;*.BAK"). A pattern string can be a combination of valid file name characters and the asterisk (*) wildcard character. Do not include spaces in the pattern string.

    Ahh. Good point. I'll remember that next time. In fact, I'll try that right now!
