OpenFileDialog: Excluding Files

Good evening all,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to exclude files from an OpenFileDialog
object; for example if I want to find all *.TXT files except those starting
with A; usually to find the files I would type: Text Files|*.TXT; but I have
no idea how to exclude those that start with A.

I have checked the help, communities and MSDN without success; so if anyone
knows how to do this please let me know.

Yours sincerely,

William Foster

I would like to display two different types of files when bringing up the OpenFileDialog, but I can't seem to figure out how to do this. I can manage a single file type or all file types, but not just the ones that I want. I used the statement before and though it displays the *.csproj files it does not display the *.sln files. openFileDialog.Filter = "Solution Files (*.sln) And Project Files (*.csproj)|*sln ;*.csproj|All Files...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
