    Default how to save to a specified path

    hello everyone I have created a small application using Netbeans
    when I click the save button it will capture the screenshot of that application and saves in the drive

    everything is right but when I save it, it is saving directly and when i save it again it is replacing with the old file.

    so what I want is when i click the save button it should ask me where to save (specified path / destination as haw it will ask in ms-word or notepad ) so that i can save that in my desired path with my desired name

    please help me how to solve this problem

    thank you in advance

    Look at the JFileChooser class as a way for a user to specify where to write a file.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Here's a link to the Java API doc: Java Platform SE 7
    There are examples there.

    All beginners need to know how to find class definitions in the API doc
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
