I am using a jfilechooser for saving a file..i have 3 file filters..the problem occurs when i use a wild characters in the file name ( * / ? < | > : \\ " )....i display a error when the filename contains any of the wild characters.....but in case the name contains '*' or '?' the name entered in the fileName field gets added to the file type(filefilters combobox) instead of displaying error ....How can i avoid this. ie stop searching when characters entered contain '*' or '?'
