Have anyone noticed that i the "SaveDialog" of JFileChooser the 'Details' button on the top right corner is always pressed and one cannot toggle between 'Details' and 'List'. I believe its abug, if any one has come across this do please let me know. Secondly how do i get the File Types as ".xml" and remove the "All Files(*.*)" option in the "Files of Type :" combobox.
Your help is appreciated.

You need to create a filter. From the API
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
