Post subject:  Create image FileTypes?

Hello all,
In my app I have an image well, which I want users to be able to drop image files onto.

I have the following code in the imagewell's dropObject event:

If Obj.PictureAvailable then
Elseif Obj.FolderItemAvailable then
End if

I understand that I also need to create the FileTypes, and then add them as acceptedFileTypes via the app's properties editor.

The Language Reference states that a file type is created using the code below:

Dim jpegType As New FileType
jpegType.Name = "image/jpeg"
jpegType.MacType = "JPEG"
jpegType.MacCreator = "prvw"
jpegType.Extensions = "jpg;jpeg"

Dim pngType As New FileType
pngType.Name = "image/png"
pngType.MacType = "PNG "
pngType.MacCreator = "ogle"
pngType.Extensions = "png"

Dim f As FolderItem
//using the addition and conversion operators...
f = GetOpenFolderItem( jpegType + pngType )

Could someone please tell me where I place this code, as I put it into the window's open event, but when I try to add them to the app's list of accepted filetypes - none are displayed in the list editor??

Thank you all in advance.

Those file types are transient: they only exist for as long as that event.
Use Project/Add/File Type Set
to create a permanent, app -wide definition.
