OpenFileDialog out of memory

When calling OpenFileDialog,
in one project I get exception out of memory (untrappable), while in
another it
works ok. (I create a new project with just this code and it sometimes does
not work, at all.).
Exception occurs while program is trying to show dialog (it shows it for a
second).

OpenFileDialog dl=new OpenFileDialog( );
dl.ShowDialog() ;
(of course, I did not forget using IO)

In those projects that it works, OpenFileDialog (again randomly and
persistently) does not display thumbnails (instead of them it shows large
icons).

Does anyone have a clue...

has anyone experienced problems with interactions between OpenFileDialog and FileStream? When I select "open" from an OpenFileDialog the subsequent calls to FileStream do not create a file. If I do anything else, eg, navigate to other folders, and then press "cancel" the file is created. This occurrs just with the simple code below. Any ideas private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e // open the common dialog bo...

I am having a weird problem and I have can't figure out why it is happening. I create an OpenFileDialog and set a filename filter. When the dialog first opens, the filter works correctly, and only the files I want to see appear in the file list box. When I change the filter to one of the other filters, all the files in the list disappear. If I then manually type a filter into the "Filename" textbox, then the files appear and the filter...

OpenFileDialog appears to be "holding onto" the parent folder of a selected file until the application using the dialog quits. After creating a folder containing a file, I attempted to select that file with an OpenFileDialog. I used the following code to create the dialog: Dim a As New OpenFileDialog a.ShowDialog() a.Dispose()

It strikes me that System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog seems te 'remember' which directory it was in last, even when a new OpenFileDialog-object is created for every access to the file system. This 'persistence' also holds between different invocations of the same program. Even when the .cs file is re-compiled, the OpenFileDialog again opens in the directory where it was directed to the previous time. 1. Is this a 'feature' of...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
