I can set the single file extension for Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialg like this:
Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialg dlg = new Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialog("select files", null, "dwg", null, Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialog.OpenFileDialogFlags.AllowMultiple);
But how to set set multiple file extension?
I have tried "dwg|dxf",but it does not work.

Hello,
Give it a try......

OpenFileDialog Ofn = new OpenFileDialog();
Ofn.Filter = "C Sharp Files (*.cs)|*.cs|Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt";
Ofn.Title = "Type File";
Ofn.Multiselect = true;
Ofn.ShowDialog();

Best Regards,
Basha

For Multiple file extension options as you indicate, you could use :-
// using SWF = System.Windows.Forms;
// --
SWF.OpenFileDialog dlg = new SWF.OpenFileDialog();

dlg.Filter = "Drawing Based Files (*.dwg, *.dxf)|*.dwg;*.dxf";

dlg.Multiselect = true;

If you're using OpenFileDialog from Autocad, separate the extensions with semicolons eg. "dwg;dwt"

For example

 

Dim dlg As Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialog = New Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows.OpenFileDialog("Open Dat Files", "", "dat", "", 0)
