I am putting a JFileChooser in my program, but that only takes images.
For a list of types supported by that JRE on that OS, use
FileFilter imageFilter = new FileNameExtensionFilter( "Image files", ImageIO.getReaderFileSuffixes());
Types seen – Java 1.6/Windows 7
bmp jpg jpeg wbmp png gif
Note: don’t hard-code that list! It might change from version to version, and OS to OS. E.G.
- I am not surprised that Windows has support to load BMP, but does that come up in a Mac?
- Seeing WBMP alerted me to the existence of such a format!
That list would have many more formats if jai was installed.
