Why do I get some odd error about STA thread when I run this code? It seems
to idicate a problem with this line:
if (saveFileDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)

Code:

private void buttonSaveAs_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Stream myStream;
SaveFileDialog saveFileDialog1 = new SaveFileDialog();

saveFileDialog1.Filter = "txt files (*.txt)|*.txt|All files
(*.*)|*.*";
saveFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 2;
saveFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = true;

if (saveFileDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
{
if ((myStream = saveFileDialog1.OpenFile()) != null)
{
// Code to write the stream goes here.
myStream.Close();
}
}

}

Have you hand-written your main method and forgotten to use the
StaThread attribute?

Na... If you are just upgrading from vb6, dont fret the flags too much.
the only other flag that you will see often is the [serializable()], but
that one
is very well documented when you get into object serialization.

Besides, it was only a week ago I fell into that snag too. :p

Happy hacking
