The code will demonstrate how to use the Save File Dialog Box to Save a File

private void btnSaveTextFile_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
StreamWriter sw = null;

sdlgTextFile.AddExtension = true;

// Check to verify that the output path
// actually exists. Prompt before
// creating a new file? Prompt before
// overwriting?
// The default is true.

sdlgTextFile.CheckPathExists = true;

// The default is false.

sdlgTextFile.CreatePrompt = false;

// The default is true.

sdlgTextFile.OverwritePrompt = true;

// The default is true.

sdlgTextFile.ValidateNames = true;

// The default is false.

sdlgTextFile.ShowHelp = true;

// if the user doesn't supply an extension,
// and if the AddExtension property is
// true, use this extension.
// The default is "".

sdlgTextFile.DefaultExt = "txt";

// Prompt with the current file name
// if you've specified it.
// The default is "".

sdlgTextFile.FileName = FileName;

// The default is "".

sdlgTextFile.Filter = "Text files (*.txt)|*.txt|" + "All files|*.*";
sdlgTextFile.FilterIndex = 1;

if (sdlgTextFile.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
FileName = sdlgTextFile.FileName;

sw = new StreamWriter(FileName);
catch (Exception exp)
MessageBox.Show(exp.Message, this.Text);
if (sw != null)
