    SaveFileDialog dlg = new SaveFileDialog();

    dlg.Filter = "C Sharp Files (*.cs)|*.cs|Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt";
    dlg.AddExtension = true;
    dlg.DefaultExt = ".cs";

    if (dlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
    {
        System.IO.TextWriter w = new System.IO.StreamWriter(dlg.FileName.ToString());

        w.Write( output_richtextbx.Text );

Why don't you use an option from Visual Studio, File-> Save "FileName" as option. "FileName" will be your cs file.:)

Sorry, but I may be a little confused: You want your application executable code to save changes you made in the Visual Studio designer?

Are you planning on shipping your entire source code and a copy of Visual Studio with each installation of your application?

Or are you confused about what you need to save where? To save changes you make in the designer, you just use the Visual Studio menu "File...Save All", which defaults to CTRL+SHIFT+S.


"no, my project is a windows form application, where i can draw , write ..
in this form i have a save button which will save the form and the changes i done.. so when the save button is clicked , it will save all i have done in a .cs file
and when i open the saved file, i want it o open the work i done in this form !!
I'm sorry for my weak english"



OK: Don't use the extension ".cs" - that implies it is a C# source file...

What you are asking for is too big for a quick answer! I suggest that you have a look at basic MSDN examples - Scribble[^] is probably a good one - and work around what they do. At least it will give you the idea, and the basics!

Sorry, but sometimes, there just is no substitute for reading! :laugh:
