wxFileSelector with wxOVERWRITE_PROMPT does the wrong thing

If you call


with the


and then you attempt to _save_
a file wich already exists,
you're prompted to overwrite the file (yes or no),
and if you click no,
wxFileSelector returns.

IMHO, that is wrong behaviour.

If a user answers no after being prompted to overwrite,
he should be given a chance to pick
another filename.

Just my 2 cents

Which platform is this?

comment:2 Changed 15 years ago by crazyinsomniac

Windows 2000 SP3

I actually stumbled upon this via wxPerl,
but verified it using one of the wxWindows-2.4.1 samples.

Also, it's kind of lame (but not critical)
that this is done in a non-native windows way
(windows file dialogs don't disappear when they prompt you
to overwrite)

Fixed in 2.5.1. Apparently this was done to work around some
bug with OFN_OVERWRITEPROMPT but I can't reproduce this bug
any more and the emulated behaviour is indeed quite strange
and non native.

Thanks for reoprting!
