object.FileOpenType = Value

Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) the settings file type that appears when you first display Reflection's Open Settings dialog box. For example, this statement specifies that Color settings files should be listed when you first open the dialog box:

Session.FileOpenType = rcColors

The value of this property changes automatically if the FileTypeSticky property is True (the default setting) and a user opens a new file type using the Open Settings dialog box. For example, opening a Connection settings file (*.rco) changes the value of FileOpenType to rcConnection. When FileTypeSticky is False, the value of FileOpenType is not affected by actions taken in the Open Settings dialog box. FileOpenType is not affected when you open settings files programmatically (for example using OpenSettingsExtended), regardless of the current value of FileTypeSticky.


The default value is rcSettings.
