Hi all,
How can i say that my JFileChooser shows only the files with .red extension?
There is a method accept() in API but i dont know how to accept only .red files.
Thanks in advance

Basically you have to create an instance of the class FileFilter, then call JFileChooser.addChoosableFileFilter().

You will also want to remove the "accept all" file filter. This is the basic idea:


There is a tutorial here:
