Is it possible in the save dialog to display a msgbox with e.g. 4 fields whith must be filled. At pressing OK the filename ist automaticly build with FIELD1#FIELD2#FIELD3#FIELD4.PDF

Thanks for your answers

Hello Uwe,

Welcome to our forums.

You have posted in the Editor plug-ins section - so is your enquiry related to any particular plug-in, or do you refer to the general Save As dialogue?
I am afraid that it is not possible - as at the time you see the save dialogue - we have already passed control to Windows - and it is handling the save process - so having a form with fields pop-up at this time can't be done.

If you need to control the file name in a more automated way - maybe explain the whole process you want to achieve step by step - and we will see if we can offer any alternative approach.
