Q

Creating a file association

I have created an application where the user saves a different file for each project. My question relates to after the program has been installed. How do I make it so when they double click their file it opens the app, and then runs my code to import there file into the application?
What you're looking to do is to create a file association. In general, your installation program is the one that goes about doing this. For more information, take a look here.
